Donation helps keep Eunice health center open

Posted: Updated:

The Eunice Community Health Center was struggling to keep their doors open to the public until just recently when they received a sizable donation that would help keep them afloat.

Without the funds to maintain services, the Eunice Community Health Center was in its final stages. This would mean that tax paying citizens in eight parishes would be without healthcare. This donation will help dramatically and the staff is more than grateful to be able to continue to serve the community.

"It's just a lot of people that work hard here for free, including myself, all the volunteers and everything. It really helps our community in more ways that we could possibly imagine." said the Eunice Community Health Center President of Cleveland Michaud

Just last year the clinic serviced over 5,000 patients. Most of the clients are working and uninsured or they are working and are unable to get insurance. The $140,000 donation should be enough to cover operations or the next two years.
