Willa Carson Center has served over 4,000 uninsured and under-served patients, provides medical services to all of Pinellas County, with 30% coming from outside of the North Greenwood Community. Services are focused on non-emergency primary health care, treating conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, asthma and other chronic illnesses. There are also free-to-the-public monthly education classes and a community outreach program.
The Center’s primary source of funding is through grants, in-kind donations and fund-raising events. Major funding over the past three years has been provided by the City of Clearwater Community Block Grant, Pinellas County Social Action Funding, Morton Plant Mease Foundation, Pinellas Community Foundation, Allegany Franciscan Ministries, Florida Association of Free and Charitable Clinics and Gulfcoast N. Educational Center. We have also formed great partnerships with the Black Nurses Association and Turley Family Health Center.
