First Care Women’s Clinic in West Palm Beach and its plans to build a one-stop center for maternity care and wellness were the center of attention at a special Vision Dinner held at the Breakers on Feb. 4. The Vision Dinner committee was led by Angela Williams of Palm Beach, Allie Hanley of Palm Beach, Luciana Vittoria of Palm Beach, Annie Erneston of Singer Island, Denice Simpson of Wellington, Diane Hanlon of Wellington and Holly Boswell of Palm Beach Gardens.
The committee and First Care Executive Director Beau Heyman welcomed approximately 60 guests, many of whom learned about the agency, which assists women who are dealing with crisis pregnancies and empowering them with information and support to keep their babies. First Care Women’s Clinic is a faith-based organization that focuses on providing women with alternatives and resources to keep their child, rather than seek termination.
The 20/20 Vision and Beyond: Project Light and Hope campaign to raise funds for a comprehensive care center is the nonprofit’s focus this year, Heyman said.
“We’d like to purchase a building, which would house a First Care medical clinic and partners as tenants, such as social services and a pro-life obstetrician,” Heyman said. “It would make it easier for us to refer clients to existing partners, and be a centralized location for services, in addition to being a revenue generator. Such a center doesn’t exist in Palm Beach County now, and we feel that it would fill a critical void.”
