PHW Community Health Sponsorship Program

The Community Health Sponsorship Program (CHSP) will focus on our vision of “transforming the health of the community one person at a time.”  The CHSP will allow PA Health and Wellness to focus on investing in the community by funding programs that align with our core mission.  This investment targets programs that better support and enhance the lives of the Community HealthChoices (CHC) participants.

For the past two years, PA Health and Wellness has focused on educating our community partners on the services that PA Health and Wellness offers as a new organization in the CHC space.

PA Health and Wellness will move forward by seeking to enhance relationships where existing programs can be leveraged, current capacity is increased, and collective impact is broad but meaningful.
