CMP Charity of the Day: Community Health Services

Community Health Services' mission is to provide health care for people who can’t afford it. Its services include a free health clinic staffed by a network of volunteer physicians -- if you don’t have insurance you can enroll in the program and see the doctors for free. The United Way cut its funding allocation by 38%, or $182,996. That represents 20% of its whole budget. Because of the funding cut, CHS had to cut its community-based nursing program, which sent nurses out into the field, despite a 40% increase in demand. —Rachel Clapp, WCNC
