Nonprofits Can Apply for Health Care Financing to Support At-Risk Populations |  Health care

Joseph S. Pete

Charities and health and human service organizations can apply for up to $10,000 in funding through June 11. 

Bowlers in Michigan City raised $8,000 this year to help pay for cancer testing and treatment by rolling at the 20th annual Bowl For The Cure. Every year since 2002, the Michigan City United States Bowling Congress Bowling Association has staged the fundraiser. Since 2008, Bowl for the Cure raised $70,000 for the Franciscan Health Michigan City Breast Center to pay for mammograms and treatment for uninsured women who can’t afford it in LaPorte and Porter Counties. Nonprofits that provide health care programs to at-risk populations in Northwest Indiana can apply to Franciscan Health’s Social Impact Partnership Program.

When distributing funding, it will prioritize access to health care, food insecurity, house stability, social bridging, mental health and substance abuse.   Source To qualify, nonprofits must serve vulnerable populations in communities that are served by Franciscan Health. The health care system is particularly looking for programs that would help populations most in need, such as at-risk youths, refugees and immigrants, those with chronically low resources, and victims of systemic racism.

“This partnership program is about forging meaningful relationships with those who are dedicated to improving health issues in our most vulnerable communities and addressing the root causes. While funding is important, engaging professional expertise can be equally beneficial for organizations with limited means.” “Improving health extends beyond a hospital or a physician’s office. It really begins in the community, working with organizations at the grassroots level to address specific health issues within that area,” said Caitlin Leahy, senior vice president for Franciscan Health Foundation and Community Health Improvement.
