The Good a Health Clinic exists to address the local need to take care of our friends  and neighbors who find affordable health care out of their current reach. The individuals the Good Health Clinic cares for are not only the homeless, but also many of the “working poor” in our community. These patients work in the dive, fishing, hospitality, and the self-employed industries that typically have low, irregular pay and no employer covered health insurance. Many of these professions are essential to the culture and amenities provided in the Florida Keys, yet the workers struggle to pay for the basic needs, particularly in the high cost living areas. When individuals have access to preventative care and chronic disease management through primary care they are able to live the happier, healthier, more productive lives.

 The Plantation Key School PTA sets yearly goals that promote the welfare and education of children while taking into account current school needs. They work in partnership with a variety of individuals, including parents and staff members, to accomplish our goals. Their overall purpose is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and community members to advocate for all children. The PKS PTA is dedicated to promoting student success and well-being through strong parent, family, and community involvement. They strive to offer services and resources that meet the diverse needs of the PKS student body. They also promote activities that strengthen school spirit, encourage family togetherness and support safety within our community.
