Together, we can

amplify the impact

we have on our communities. 

The ampersand represents many things for Adult & Child Health. One of those important concepts is community— made up of patients & clients & staff & partners & neighbors & more. 

“And” means everyone. And we’re able able to better serve our communities through the support of generous donors like you

Amplify the impact of A&C's services through your support.

Adult & Child staff often work directly with members of the community to help them access services, resources, and supplies. In many cases, donated supplies enable our neighbors to fill a hungry belly, to stay warm and dry, or to simply make it through another day as they continue taking steps toward their goals. Your support can help close the gaps as we walk alongside our clients in their journeys toward a healthier lifestyle, a better state of mind, a home of their own, or a brighter future. 

Please continue reading below to learn more about how to join in our efforts focusing on specific teams and service lines. Your donation will put items directly into the hands of those in need.
