With our mobile health programs, neighborhood centers and community partners, we’re expanding access to immunizations, diabetes care, cardiovascular care, behavioral health, early detection cancer screening, and maternal and infant health.
Strengthening the physical resources where we live and work
We all rely on the structure of our homes and neighborhoods to meet our most basic needs, so we’re investing in efforts to improve access to affordable healthy housing, transportation and physical activity.
Our three neighborhood centers in Chicago provide in-person and virtual access to health and wellness programming and resources at no cost. We’re expanding the model to New Mexico in 2024.
Reliable access to nutritious food is essential to health and wellness. To help meet this need, we invest in Feeding America and community-based organizations that buy and distribute fresh food and provide culturally appropriate education and support.
Access to care and resources varies greatly across our states, which include large urban areas and wide expanses of rural communities. We’re driving change with local organizations that have the expertise and perspective needed to meet diverse needs.

It’s hard to focus on health without stable income, access to jobs, and chances to gain new skills and grow. With our major grant program and jobs in communities across our states, we’re advancing economic opportunity and stability.
