Project Description:








There is a void in Ocala,  Marion County,  in accessible health programs or preventive care. Currently CFCC students provide some preventive care to children in the area. The Community Outreach Prevention Center will offer training in health education fields and in records management, also health screenings and sponsor a teen pregnancy preventive model.  There are numerous local partners supporting this effort. UF has agreed to locate their dental program in this facility. There are no local or private dollars for this project, but there are matching federal funds available through the Dept. of Commerce in the amount of $1.5 million. Contact: Willie Taylor(404) 730-3032. All in-kind will be in the form of service resources once the center is constructed.
