Supporting the work of Corktown Health Center is easy.  And easy on your budget. You can sign up to make a monthly contribution for as little as $5.00 per month, or in whatever amount fits your budget.   Many supporters now choose to acknowledge their birthdays, weddings, and other special events, by encouraging their friends and family to support Corktown Health Center in lieu of gifts.

Support for the initial phase of the development of Corktown Health Center was provided by the board of directors of the HELP organization.  A large portion of the support we received came from our vendors who provided in-kind donations of labor, materials, and professional services as well as from donors like you.

In the coming weeks you will hear more about ways you can support the health center.
