Date:5/27/2009

NEW YORK, May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the Children's Health Fund (CHF) announced a grant of $500,000 from the Starr International Foundation to support a new health care clinic in the South Bronx for homeless children and their families.

The Starr International Foundation grant will support the clinic's medical team and all necessary medical and program expenses. The homeless health care clinic is part of the New York Children's Health Project, a program sponsored by CHF and The Children's Hospital of Montefiore.

The grant will allow the clinic to provide medical, mental health, and nutrition services five days a week, with up to 2,400 annual patient encounters, and will support a medical team consisting of a pediatrician, social worker, nursing assistant, part-time nutritionist, part-time psychologist and registrar, all of whom will be overseen by the Project's Medical Director.

"We are grateful that the Starr International Foundation and so many others have contributed generously to allow us to provide a much needed state-of-the-art health care clinic in the Bronx," said Karen B. Redlener, executive director of CHF.
