Texas Health Action: Kind Clinic Highlight
This month, we are learning more about the organization Texas Health Action: Kind Clinic and how it works to support the LGBTQ+ community. This organization is one of the four nonprofits that will receive a grant from the Mama Bears Giving Circle in the second grant round. We had the pleasure of speaking directly with their team to gain additional insight about what they do. Here is the information they wanted to share with the Mama Bears!
