Not-for-Profit Receives Grant for Pediatric Dental Care
The First 5 Sacramento Commission has awarded a $2.95 million grant to The Effort, a not-for-profit facility in Sacramento that offers addiction services, and mental health and primary care across the four-county region. The Effort will use the funding to create four pediatric dental care clinics, with the goal of reducing dental disease in children ages five and younger. The clinics could serve up to 11,000 patients by 2015.
