What's Going On With The Equi Institute?
Due to the clinic's focus on providing accessible services for low-income and medicaid patients, Sacred Vessel is not sustainable as a for-profit. In an effort to create a more sustainable model, The Equi Institute has been quietly working towards becoming a 501c3.
In 2018, when Equi obtains official non-profit status, Sacred Vessel will dissolve and donate all assets to The Equi Institute. Equi will assume all clinic operations, turning the clinic into a non-profit.
Having access to grant funding and donations will allow the clinic to offer more access to low-cost/free health care, expanded services and new advocacy programming.
We've been doing a lot of building in the last year, take a look at our new board members and updated program development!
