Many of our clients face major obstacles that prevent them from accessing health care–one of those is transportation. These challenges prevent clients from receiving the care they need to maintain a healthy life. Our new rapid health ride program assists patients in need of immediate healthcare. In the past year, we provided 1,113 roundtrip rides to take patients from their homes to urgent health care visits at Care Resource, expending $33,381, approximately $60 per round trip. The need for urgent health care rides far exceeds the funding available for this service.

Your support will provide resources to respond to the health needs of patients and their families

In our diverse communities, the vulnerable and medically underserved face increased housing instability. Safe housing is an important determinant of health. Unmet housing needs can profoundly affect a person’s physical and mental health and is a significant barrier to care. Care Resource prioritizes maintaining stable, healthy environments among our patients by providing rental, mortgage, and utilities assistance via our Emergency Assistance
Fund.
