Access to Quality Healthcare

The St. Joe Foundation believes that each person has rights and responsibilities and must be respected and treated fairly. One significant way that the Foundation realizes this is by assuring that everyone in the community has access to quality healthcare regardless of their ability to pay.

Approximately 35-40% of the annual grants are directed to help provide valuable resources assuring that the community has a safety net of free or low-cost providers of quality care for the mind, body, and spirit.

Grant funds are available to non-profit organizations committed to these values for operating support, salaries, case management, patient education, medical equipment, and more. Learn more about the Foundation through Community Impact Reports and Grantee Stories.

This has included funding for the medical director, dental director and volunteer coordinator positions, medical and surgical equipment, and training for their Spanish-speaking medical interpreters. Matthew 25 serves the community with over 20,000 patients visits to their medical and dental clinics annually.
