Partners in Health
Our mission is to provide a preferential option for the poor in healthcare. By establishing long-term relationships with sister organizations based in settings of poverty, Partners in Health strives to achieve two overarching goals: to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need of them and to serve as an antidote to despair.
Children’s Health Fund
Children’s Health Fund (CHF) envisions a future where all children in America receive the care they need to be healthy and ready to reach their full potential. Because healthcare is a critical component of that vision and inequities in access exist, CHF’s mission is to ensure access to high-quality healthcare for America’s most disadvantaged children. Founded in 1987, today CHF supports 26 National Programs. We reach more than 100,000 children and family members annually through fixed-site and mobile clinics at over 400 schools, Head Start centers, shelters and community sites, delivering healthcare where children live, learn, and play in 16 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. In addition to ensuring access to healthcare, CHF works to reduce health barriers to learning in children from high-need communities, brings the voice of children and youth to local and national policy debates, and responds to the needs of children impacted by natural disasters and other public health crises.
