The Westside Family Health Center in Santa Monica has received a $50,000 grant from The Rose Hills Foundation to deliver health services on its Mobile Medical Unit.
“We are very pleased and thankful to program officer Li-Ling Wang who came out and toured WFHC and the Mobile Medical Unit. She and the Rose Hills Foundation’s Board of Directors clearly believe in the importance of bringing comprehensive health care services to vulnerable populations who cannot come to us,” said Debra A. Farmer, the health center’s president/chief executive officer.
The 36-foot Mobile Medical Unit visits a total of seven local locations such as Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services and five high schools, providing a variety of medical resources.
The family health center is also talking with several potential partners, including two behavioral health agencies where the organization would provide a medical home to children, teens, adults and families struggling with behavioral, mental health and substance abuse issues.
