Donate to Florida's Community Health Centers Affected by Hurricane Michael

As more and more images are shared of the destruction of the Florida Panhandle post-Hurricane Michael, we first want to say how grateful we are for the efforts of the many first responders who continue to serve people in the affected area. National, state, and local responses have been well organized. Unfortunately, the damage is so severe, it will take a very long time for conditions to return to being livable. Areas most impacted by the storm include North Florida Medical Centers and Pancare Community Health Centers out of Panama City and the surrounding counties.

As the association that represents all the Community Health Centers in Florida, the Florida Association of Community Health Centers (FACHC) is working closely with members impacted by Hurricane Michael. We have activated mobile medical units from other Community Health Centers across the state and even outside of Florida. We are working with Direct Relief, Americares, and International Medical Corps to provide supplies as well. Sunshine, our Centene partner here in Florida, is providing a helping hand to the entire region.

The Community Health Centers that suffered a hit by this storm have been through a devastating event. Centers lost structures. Employees and patients have lost homes. Supplies are scarce. 

FACHC has created a Relief Fund to address the needs of these Community Health Centers affected by the storm and their employees. This fund will help us provide much-needed relief for these individuals. Any and all donations to the link here will be greatly appreciated. These funds will be used for supplies, structural repairs, groceries, and cash assistance, as most banks are either damaged or unusable in the area. FACHC has initiated the fund with $1,000.

We are very grateful to all our friends who have reached out to assist.
