Foundation

The HealthSource Foundation was established in 2013 to provide our staff with additional resources to care for the patients we serve. The programs supported by the Foundation reach far beyond the four walls of our health centers to address the underlying causes of health disparities and drastically improve the health and well-being of our patients and communities. We believe the HealthSource Foundation is More than Medicine.

More Than Medicine Programs

Hunger as a Health Issue

Lacking access to nutritious food is a dire public health concern for many of the patients and communities we serve. HSO’s Hunger as a Health Issue program provides patients with immediate access to tailored recipes and ingredients, offers nutrition education and hands-on cooking demonstrations, delivers seasonally fresh produce to our medical offices, provides farmers market vouchers, and refers patients to community resources that address hunger and other social determinants of health.

Open a Book to Open a Door Literacy Program

Open a book to Open a Door is our way to support early literacy. We believe that by providing a book for all children that walk through our doors, will increase ways to a brighter future. Our goal is that each child begins to build their own library.
