The majority of our clients are immigrants, people of color, and/or speak English as a second language.

More than 9,600 hospital days are avoided annually because patients have the support needed to leave the hospital.

$80 million in donated health care and $16 million in health-related spending has been distributed since 2007.

"I believe in providing the same quality healthcare to people who have insurance and the ability to pay as to those who don’t. Since our healthcare system doesn’t always equalize, the onus is on us."

I am so grateful for the support that Project Access NOW provides for me and those like me whose legal status keeps them from getting health insurance. Without Project Access NOW, I would have had no other options. Thank you to all who make this service possible.”
