Increasing Access, Quality and Affordability

We seek to advance health equity by increasing quality, affordable health services, particularly for low-income, uninsured and under-insured individuals. We are most interested in organizations that understand the distinct cultural and racial communities they serve and create meaningful programs and services for those communities. Our concept of health is holistic in nature, meaning that we support direct services and education addressing chemical, mental, oral, and physical health including investments in community-based clinics with culturally specific models.
