“The impact [of this program] has been tremendous. Free Saturday Health screenings historically served about 55 participants within a 3-hour span. Now, at a single health screening, HPES typically serves more than 100 participants within that same 3-hour span. Before we opened recently at 9:00 am, a line had formed around the block of individuals waiting to receive services.”
