In a Nutshell: Child poverty rates in America are among the highest of all developed nations. In addition, more than 20 million children in the US lack access to quality health care. Children’s Health Fund is working to change that latter statistic by bringing health care directly to underserved families and kids in communities that need it most. Through its mobile pediatric medical clinics, also known as “big blue buses,” the Children’s Health Fund has been providing access to health care for America’s impoverished families for more than 30 years. CHF believes, by reducing the health barriers to learning, children can escape the cycle of poverty and become productive members of our society.
