A grant from the Yardley, England, Trimmer, and Orlich Charities Fund at the Central Florida Foundation will help Angels Care Center of Eloise care for sick and injured residents in Winter Haven.
The Yardley, England, Trimmer, and Orlich Charities Fund at the Central Florida Foundation has awarded the GiveWell Community Foundation (GWCF) a grant of $10,185.23 to care for sick and injured residents in the Winter Haven area who are unable to financially obtain medical care. To achieve this, GWCF accepted grant applications from several area nonprofit clinics. Angels Care Center of Eloise was chosen to receive the grant.
Angels Care Center of Eloise, Inc. is a faith-based primary care clinic that provides free health care to residents in the Eloise/Winter Haven area with no medical health insurance. Volunteer physicians provide free general health care at the facility, and the clinic negotiates with local medical centers to provide specialized services at reduced rates.
The grant will help Angels Care Center of Eloise treat more patients, cover costs of expensive procedures, and improve the overall health of the community through their “DOVE” program. The “Dental, Orthopedic, Vision for Everyone” program often provides services to patients that, if left untreated, would cause long-term pain and discomfort, require additional treatment, and could even be become life-threatening.
“When patients are at our facility, we provide educational information for healthy habits and our volunteer physicians talk with them about how to improve their health,” said Larry Powell, President and Co-Founder of Angels Care Center of Eloise. “Better health keeps our patient populations out of the hospitals and at work!”
Thank you to the Yardley, England, Trimmer, and Orlich Charities Fund at the Central Florida Foundation for allowing GWCF the opportunity to administer this grant. This grant provides critical medical care for members of our community who need it most.
