Community Health Alliance of Pasadena (ChapCare) has been awarded a $75,000 grant by the S. Mark Taper Foundation, a private family foundation dedicated to enhancing the quality of people’s lives by
supporting nonprofit organizations and their work in local communities.
The grant award will support the provision of more than 490 high-quality medical visits to at-risk and uninsured patients in the San Gabriel Valley over a one-year period.
ChapCare offers primary medical care at four health centers in Pasadena, one health center in Monrovia, and three health centers in El Monte/South El Monte. Additional services are available at select ChapCare health center locations. These include: dental care, behavioral health counseling, specialty services such as optometry and podiatry, on-site pharmacy, HIV specialty care, health insurance screening and enrollment, among others.
“Access to primary healthcare services is critical to treat acute and chronic illnesses and support the long-term health of the communities we serve through important preventive care,” said Margaret Martinez, ChapCare’s CEO. “We are grateful to the S. Mark Taper Foundation for providing these much-needed general operating support funds, which will expand access to primary healthcare services for those who are in-need.”
