the David Lawrence Center continues to focus on its mission of meeting the mental
health and substance abuse needs of Southwest Florida through compassionate,
affordable, quality care. Adequate funding and the need for critical facility
space continue to be the biggest challenges before the Center. Currently, a master
site plan for the Golden Gate Parkway campus has been developed and continues
to evolve. The plan currently includes an expansion of the adult crisis stabilization
unit from a 20 bed to a 30 bed unit. Despite the growing need and success of
community based treatment, governmental sources of revenue continue to diminish
and cannot be relied upon to help the Center meet the needs of the community.
The build out of this site plan cannot be realized without the financial support
of our community.
