Mission, Vision, and Values
The Community HealthCare Connections (CHC) mission is to serve as a health access resource for the uninsured and underinsured residents of Calhoun County.
A community where no one goes without the health care they need.
CHC Mission in Action
Upon returning to MI, she was briefly at SAFE Place, and then moved in with a friend. She found out she could no longer live with her friend, her son moved out of town, and therefore she became homeless.
Lucinda came back to CHC for medical reasons and re-enrolled in PDAP. She relays that CHC has greatly improved her quality of life because she would not be able to afford necessary medication otherwise. While Lucinda was meeting with a Navigator at CHC, she was also connected to InAsMuch House, where she currently resides.
Lucinda said she “would recommend CHC to anyone who needed help”. In fact, she already has recommended CHC to individuals at InAsMuch. Lucinda relayed that CHC has “done wonders for me”.
