Neighborhood Health Stations Fund

The Fund for Community Progress is the fiscal agent for the pilot phase of Neighborhood Health Stations. 

What is a Neighborhood Health Station?

A Neighborhood Health Station is a new kind of community organization that builds communities as it improves the health of individuals.  It provides a place for people in a neighborhood to get most of the medical services they need, a coordinated team of health professionals to care for that community, a community organization that can advocate for the health of everyone who lives in the community, and a place for people to come together, exercise and grow together.
