Health

Access to health care is vital for children to grow and develop and for adults to live a full and productive life.

Health conditions can have devastating effects beyond the immediate physical consequences. Illness, chronic disease and mental health concerns may impact the emotional and financial well-being of individuals and families in significant and permanent ways.

Access to Care

By providing access to primary care, mental health services and medication and by aligning community-wide goals with expertise from our network of partners, we help individuals and families achieve optimal health and live independently and productively in our community.

Living a Healthy Life

Providing comprehensive medical and mental health care to those with insufficient coverage goes beyond a doctor’s visit. It means helping people prevent, manage and treat all aspects of their health. It means giving them the information and resources needed to make healthy choices for their families.
