Our community health centers providing many vital, non-reimbursable services to individuals and their families living in under-served areas.  Harbor Health’s Elder Service Plan enables close to 300 frail elders to remain living in their own homes while recieiving essential care. We rely upon the generosity of individuals, corporate sponsors, local businesses, and other giving organizations to help us narrow the gap between the demand for services and programs, and our resources.

As you consider making a donation, think of the following:

  • A gift of $150.00 can underwrite a medical visit for an under-served child.
  • A gift of $1,800.00 can go toward the purchase of an electronic tablet which will enable a clinician to safely and efficiently provide patient care.
  • A gift of $5,000.00 can underwrite health information technologies training for front desk staff or a financial counselor working towards providing access to coverage and needed health services.
  • A gift of $15,000.00 can build an examination room for a frail elder.
