Willa Carson Center has provided over 50,000 medical visits to uninsured and under-served residents of Pinellas County. 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 Morton Plant Mease Foundation, Pinellas Community Foundation, Allegany Franciscan Ministries, Florida Association of Free and Charitable Clinics, The Clearwater Rotary Club, and Duke Energy Foundation. We have also formed great partnerships with the Black Nurses Association and Turley Family Health Center.
