HEALTH AND WELLNESS

Description: The St. Joseph Community Health Foundation was established in 1998 when the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ sold the St. Joseph Medical Center and reorganized the St. Joseph Community Health Foundation with a significant share of the proceeds. Proceeds from the Foundation’s endowment are redistributed as grants typically ranging from $5,000 to $35,000 to advance programs, projects and partnerships that improve the access to quality healthcare and the health of the poor and powerless of Allen County. Typically, only programs that can demonstrate that greater than 51% of their clients are very low income with health issues are considered for these grants.
The Foundation shares the values and charism of its Sponsor, the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ, and follows Catholic Social Teaching. Applicants are encouraged to review our core values and key beliefs.

Deadlines: First working day of March and September.

Eligibility: Applicants should be not-for-profit organizations with a demonstrated history of serving poor and powerless populations with physical, mental, spiritual, dental and/or visual health and wellness services that benefit residents of Allen County, Indiana.

Area organizations may apply for a grant from the Foundation’s Health & Wellness Funds to support programming for operating support, salaries, case management, patient education, medical equipment, and more.
