San Manuel donates $500,000 to Riverside medical clinic

The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians has donated $500,000 to a Riverside medical clinic operated by UCR Health that assists homeless people.

The Hulen Place Clinic provides primary care, mental health services, immediate non-emergency medical services and preventive medical care, among other services, according to a statement on the city’s website.

Opened in September, the 2,500-square-foot clinic is at 2880 Hulen Place. The tribal donation will help it reach full capacity, at which point it expects to serve about 4,800 patients annually.

“The gift of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians demonstrates they are committed to giving back to their communities and investing in solutions to complex problems,” said Timothy Collins, chief executive officer of UCR Health, in the statement.

“The [tribe’s] partnership with UCR Health will address the needs of the unhoused population in Riverside County, and increase access to primary care, behavioral health, and supportive care and services necessary to improve their lives.”

Riverside is home to approximately 20 percent of Riverside County’s homeless population, which is estimated to be 3,725 people, according to the statement.
