Health nonprofit regains stability, plans growth
Sacramento Business Journal

Hit by layoffs after a period of rapid growth, The Effort Inc. has stabilized its budget and begun rebuilding. A federally qualified health center in Sacramento County, the nonprofit opened a community clinic in North Highlands Thursday. The Effort is expected to open at least two other clinics — possibly three — in the Sacramento area over the next two years as the nonprofit leverages its ability to garner resources from the federal government to serve growing numbers of poor patients — and provide a safety net as the region prepares for further changes under federal health care reform.
