Donations start to roll in for Lyon-Martin health clinic – Posted By: Victoria Colliver

Since the news broke that San Francisco’s Lyon-Martin Health Services, which serves women and transgender people, was about to shut its doors due to financial distress, its supporters have come out in force.

After a meeting Tuesday night at the LGBT Community Center, which was attended by about 175 supporters, several supervisors and Sen. Leland Yee, more than $10,000 in donations have come in and an additional $55,000 have been pledged, said Dr. Dawn Harbatkin, medical director and interim executive director of the Upper Market clinic.
