About the Children’s Health Fund
Children’s Health Fund is committed to ensuring access to quality healthcare for children living in some of the United States’ most under-resourced communities. We acknowledge the role that racism and systems of oppression play in shaping health inequities; we support programs that bring comprehensive healthcare directly to children where they live, learn, and play; we partner with schools to create a supportive school environment to decrease health barriers to learning, chronic absenteeism, and the impact of trauma for children; and we work to improve the quality of life for families through policy and advocacy efforts that address systemic racism and drive systems change. In times of emergency, Children’s Health Fund mobilizes to ensure partners have the resources and tools to provide care to those most in need. Collectively, these efforts help to advance health equity. We support 25 programs that comprise a National Network of community health and educational partners located in 15 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington, D.C.
