Most of us strive to “do the right thing”, but sometimes it is difficult to know what the right thing is. That is the dilemma we, at Community Health Centers, Incorporated (CHCI) often face.
Because Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) receive federal funding, the general perception is private donations are not needed. Quite the contrary is true. Federal funding accounts for approximately 30% of CHCI’s annual expenses, yet 69% of our patients are homeless, uninsured or underinsured.
Herein lies the dilemma. With an ever increasing demand for services and a stagnant budget, how do you select WHO you serve? We continue to try to meet the demands of the community, but without the aid of private donors and corporate sponsors, our doors will either partially or fully close. Then, our patients will end up accessing costly Emergency Room services or occupying expensive hospital beds.
It is everyone’s best interest for CHCI to continue to “do the right thing”, but we can’t do it without your help.
