Everyone Deserves Access to Quality Health Care
Across Seattle, Neighborcare Health is the access point to comprehensive medical, dental, and behavioral health care for the most vulnerable people in our city. Of the nearly 55,000 patients (about the same number of people who live in Olympia, WA.) we care for each year:
- 69% live at or below the federal poverty level
- 43% are uninsured
- 31% are children
- 16% are homeless
Lack of insurance and poverty are the most common barriers to health care our patients face. Other burdens include:
- Lack of culturally sensitive care
- Language barriers
- Unfamiliarity with or mistrust of mainstream health care
- Behavioral health issues
Government grants and reimbursements do not cover the entire cost of all of our programs. Their sustainability largely depends on the generosity of individual donations. Your gift helps our patients overcome the obstacles they face in accessing quality care, and helps create and maintain a respectful, safe, and caring health care home in the neighborhood where they live for years to come. Make an online donation today.
