CFEBA has given the Dimock Center, which provides low-income Bostonians health care and human services, an $11,414 grant to replace its outdated air conditioning system.
The grant will cover costs for replacing an air conditioning unit that will improve conditions for patients, clients and staff, and reduce the center’s energy costs. The Northeast Energy and Commerce Association (NECA) also agreed to make a “matching” donation in the amount of $5,000. Both checks were presented to the Dimrock Center’s President and CEO Myechia Minter-Jordan by Mark Kalpin, a CFEBA Board Member and past president of NECA, at the NECA Annual Holiday Event on December 8.
Founded during the Civil War as the New England Hospital for Women and Children, the Dimock Center was the first hospital in New England opened and operated by women for women. Nationally recognized as an urban model for comprehensive delivery of health and human services, the center offers screenings, immunizations, and prevention for adults and children and specialized clinics for women’s health, OB/GYN, HIV/AIDS, eye and dental care.
