History

Mary Wohlford Family Clinic Good SamaritanMary Wohlford was passionate about the world around her. As a trained nurse, she grew particularly concerned about reproductive health and rights, and responsible population growth. Shortly after her death in 1999, and honoring Mary’s memory, the Mary Wohlford Foundation was formed and commits its resources to these priorities.

Sheana Butler, Mary’s sister and former Good Samaritan Family Resource Center Board Member, approached the Foundation trustees about creating a family planning clinic at Good Samaritan. The foundation gave seed funding for a community assessment, and it was determined that indeed, a clinic at Good Sam serving an immigrant population and beyond was needed. The Clinic opened its doors in 2001.

Staffed in partnership with Planned Parenthood Shasta Pacific, the clinic continues to increase its impact. What started out as a four hour a week clinic has grown to three days a week with dedicated teen hours and client visits of over 1,200 a year.

The Trustees of the Foundation and the family of Mary Wohlford are deeply proud to have the Clinic named in her honor.
