Health Care Access

Health care is a human right and should be accessible to all. Low-income families with young children face significant financial and logistical barriers that impede access to medical, dental, prenatal, and reproductive health care services.

 

What We Fund

Sunlight Giving promotes the health and well-being of children and families through:
Community Health Care
Community clinics and public hospitals that provide comprehensive primary care and preventative services for low income families. These providers ensure that children and families have the ability to access hearing, vision, dental, and developmental screening that refer children for further care.
Access & Advocacy
Local and statewide advocacy organizations that are dedicated to protecting children’s and families’ right to quality and affordable health care. These organizations also ensure community clinics have the resources and support to provide quality care to diverse communities.
Community Health Initiatives
Organizations and programs that are addressing barriers to access and community health needs in non-traditional settings. Examples of this work includes health screenings, outreach, referrals, diaper distribution, and community health workers.

What We Look For

  • We prioritize organizations that are addressing the logistical and financial barriers that prevent low-income families from accessing quality health coverage and care.
  • We look for organizations that provide comprehensive and culturally competent medical, dental, reproductive and prenatal care to low-income families with young children. This includes community clinics, school-based clinics, and culturally and linguistically appropriate services.

What We Don't Fund

Health programs focused solely on adults, mental health services, or specialty care.
