The Michigan AmeriCorps Member Council recently featured a story of service from a Community Health Center on their blog…

LaShauna Horton is a member of the Community Health Corps at Cherry Street Health Services in Grand Rapids. The Community Health Corps is an AmeriCorps program based in community health centers and clinics across the country that links medically underserved populations and communities with culturally appropriate primary and preventive health care.

On January 27 LaShauna’s AmeriCorps team helped out at an event called “Project Homeless Connect” held at the Van Andel Arena. This unique event offered several services including housing services, food, pedicures, glaucoma screening, and HIV testing to the homeless of Grand Rapids.

You can read LaShauna’s story online by visiting the Michigan AmeriCorps Member Council blog.
