FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - The Women’s Resource Center in Fort Collins has closed down, citing a drop in donations because of the new federal health care system.
The nonprofit has provided a wide array of bilingual health and human services primarily for uninsured or underinsured women in Larimer County since 1975. Its programs focused on prevention of breast, cervical, ovarian and reproductive cancers, dental health and diabetes education and mental health services.
The Fort Collins Coloradoan (https://noconow.co/LySzgq ) reports that the center’s board issued a statement that many of its previous donors have the perception that the Affordable Care Act will cover women’s health care needs and stopped giving money.
The statement says the board hopes the center can come back in the near future.
