To support even more homeless and low-income individuals in Columbus, The Health Center at Faith Mission recently received Federally Qualified Health Center status. This allows us to receive some government funding to help operate as a public health center and serve people who are uninsured or under-insured. Our health center will also be able to invest in quality providers, equipment and technology to make health care more accessible for people in need.
