The nonprofit Heartland Community Health Center recently began renovations on its waiting area in an effort to make patients feel more comfortable in its facility. HCHC received a grant from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment for the renovations.
The renovation process relies heavily on volunteers. Jon Stewart, whose background is in architecture, balances his usual duties as CEO of Heartland with working on the construction.
HCHC works primarily with low-income patients to provide them with healthcare, not “sick care.”
Kansas Appleseed, part of the national nonprofit organization Appleseed, made its way back to Kansas after a several year absence this August. Kansas Appleseed works with attorneys to assist with cases of injustice in Kansas.
