Low-income and other vulnerable populations in our community, including houseless individuals and immigrants, often face extraordinary barriers to accessing resources that sustain health.
The Community Assistance Program connects low-income people to resources that help them successfully transition from a hospital back into the community following major medical interventions.
Additionally, the team works closely with Coordinated Care Organizations to support Medicaid members in accessing health-related, non-medical resources available to them, such as air conditioners, taxi rides, and hotel rooms.
For our program partners, we take care of securing contracts, managing a variety of vendors, invoicing, leveraging discounts, and data collection/reporting so they can focus on their business of providing quality healthcare.
