Purpose and Activities

The foundation's purpose is to promote and support effective and creative programs, practices and policies related to healing from illness, accident, physical, social or emotional trauma, and to extend the availability of programs that promote healing to underserved populations. The foundation is particularly interested in funding programs that address the health of individuals who, because of barriers to accessing care, experience poor and sub-optimal health, including: those with no or severely limited income, cultural differences, lack of English language skills, lack of health insurance or inadequate health insurance, limited access to health care services, mental illness, substance abuse, homelessness, incarceration, and exposure to trauma. More specifically, the foundation favors proposals that seek to promote healing, healthy lives and healthy communities through: 1) innovative demonstration projects that address a major gap in the field, 2) outreach to communities and populations whose health care needs are not being met, 3) targeted advocacy efforts for vulnerable populations, and 4) collaboration among providers and other organizations.
