MLK Heath Center supported solely by goodness of others

The MLK Health Center & Pharmacy is a nonprofit clinic that truly is a great service to our community. The MLK Health Center & Pharmacy is a nonprofit clinic that truly is a great service to our community.

Our KSLA Cares team recently volunteered at the Martin Luther King Health Center on Olive Street in Shreveport.

Before visiting, many of us passed the center daily on the way to work without knowing what was happening there.

What we found during our visit was a great group of people doing important work.

Health care insurance is in the news every day. And most of it is about what is not working.

So I would like to share a positive story.

The MLK Health Center & Pharmacy is a nonprofit clinic that provides primary health care and pharmacy services at no cost to uninsured patients with chronic illnesses.

This is truly a great service to our community.

But that's not the biggest news.

The center is financially supported by the goodness of others and does not receive any state or federal funding.

They rely on donations from individuals and community partners, along with volunteers, to make all their great work happen. 

I assured the center that the KSLA Cares team will be back to help.

    June 1 was the official start of the hurricane season and while we don’t typically see a great deal of activity until later, this is a good time to make sure you and your family are ready.

    I want to see us develop downtown and offer opportunities for more pedestrian traffic, jobs and business growth. But we must address the crime problem at the same time. We need to take back our streets as we improve them. What do you think is needed to see real change and growth?
