O.C. might slash funding to model healthcare nonprofit
Los Angeles Times

Orange County officials are considering slashing funding to a Santa Ana nonprofit that has become a community model for its public health outreach efforts in the county’s poorest neighborhoods.

The head of Latino Health Access said she believes questions over the group’s funding have their roots in a dispute two years ago when county supervisors questioned why the nonprofit had to use the word “Latino” in its name and referred to its outreach workers as “promotores.”
