He who has hope has everything.”

– Thomas Carlyle

We depend on your financial support to fund programs and services that expand the scope of our patient and community wellness services.

Here are just a few of the ways donations directly benefit NCHC patients and the public.

  • support our May - Thanksgiving Farmers Market and give underserved families access to fresh produce and dietician-led healthy cooking demos
  • Childhood Obesity Prevention (everything from meausuring cups and spoons to prenatal and pediatric nutritionist to faciliated exercise and plans for individuals and groups - all to put and keep our pediatric patients and their families on a healthy path)
  • provide a patient with tools to self–manage her chronic diabetes or asthma
  • offer free pre-natal classes and new baby essentials for new expecting parents
  • decrease non-emergency use of the emergency department--reduce costs, and improve health outcomes for a WeCare homeless patient
  • put NCHC physician-prescribed medications and devices within reach for uncovered patients
  • purchase books for our reading within reach pediatric program
  • underwrite blood pressure, vision and mammogram screenings

Your tax deductible contribution is needed to keep care within reach.   NCHC's EIN is 06-1436620
