SPHF promotes the wellness of women in the Tampa Bay area by providing financial assistance for healthcare costs and supporting the education of lesbians studying in a healthcare field.
The Fund is available to women requesting financial assistance for their healthcare needs including medical, eye care, preventative dental care, and mental health costs. Equal consideration is given to alternative and traditional treatments. The SPHF services the Florida counties of Pinellas, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, and Sarasota.
The Fund is administered by an all-volunteer Board of Directors. We do not rent office space or equipment and have no paid employees. We minimize expenses so that our funds are available to as many women as possible. The Board of Directors reviews all applications on a monthly basis and provides assistance based on need and available funds.
