The Georgia Healthy Family Alliance (GHFA) recently awarded Grace Village Clinic a grant of $5,000 from the Community Health Grant Program for their Refuge Clinic project supporting healthcare for refugees and uninsured citizens in Clarkston, Georgia.
Patients at Grace Village Clinic comprise 54 nationalities, 150 ethnic groups and speak 47 languages. The entire staff is comprised of volunteer physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, physical therapists, nurses, nurse aides, medical students and translators.
In partnership with Grace Fellowship Church, Grace Village Clinic will utilize GHFA grant funds to purchase an EKG and ultrasound machine for the clinic. Funds will also be used to expand the clinic’s diagnostic imaging services via a discounted agreement with a local radiology facility.
GHFA is the philanthropic arm of the Georgia Academy of Family Physicians (GAFP). Our nationally recognized Community Health Grant Program exists to support and create momentum in an area of need and provide vital funds for family physician sponsored healthcare projects across Georgia.
