Raleigh, North Carolina
The business model of traditional health providers does not accommodate serving low-income, uninsured, or underinsured individuals. Likewise, the existing safety net clinics in Raleigh do not serve patients once they get Medicaid, and none of them provide obstetrics care.
NeighborHealth is a faith-based community health center that provides accessible and affordable health care to low-income, uninsured and underinsured individuals. Further, they offer crucial support for pregnant women who are on Medicaid. NeighborHealth is the only low-income clinic in Raleigh that offers obstetrics and accepts Medicaid. Since 40% of babies are born on Medicaid, an investment in NeighborHealth is also an investment in the cause of life.
