Good health is essential to help people move and remain out of poverty.

Poor physical or mental health can prevent or complicate the pursuit of education, employment, and other opportunities for economic mobility.

Geographic Focus Areas

The Foundation awards Community Services grants to organizations within our priority communities that provide a range of critical services to meet a range of basic needs.


Community Services grants must incorporate multiple focus areas outlined in the Housing, Health, Jobs, and Education sections of the website.
