ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Alana is currently 16 years old and started Sprinkle of Hope when she was 10. Service has always been a critical part of her life, and she believes that now more than ever it is important to give back and spread hope.
Westside Family Health Center (WFHC) is a non-profit organization located in Culver City, CA. WFHC provides medical care for the many people who cannot afford to get proper medical help. WFHC served 12,695 women, men, and children in 32,115 visits in 2018, most of whom would not have had access to health care and education otherwise. Currently, 93% of their patients live at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. When coupled with the fact that 48% of patients are uninsured, it illustrates the vulnerability of patients served. WFHC’s high rate of uninsured is also due to the fact that WFHC is never closed to new patients.
