Our work sits at the intersection of government and community, recognizing that philanthropy is most effective as the connective tissue between the two. With a deep commitment to maximizing the impact of health policies and programs while not overburdening leaders on the ground, trust-rooted practices guide everything we do.
With worse access to care and poorer population health outcomes compared to other wealthy countries, healthcare today is primarily ‘sick care’—incentivizing expensive, clinical-based interventions and caring for people once they are unwell.
We see new systems emerging.
Working together to achieve full birth equity in New Jersey
Building on the momentum created by First Lady Tammy Murphy, who—together with numerous governmental and private partners—launched Nurture NJ, CHAP was a founding member of the New Jersey Birth Equity Funders Alliance. We continue to serve as lead stewards of this coordinated, community-driven philanthropic response to New Jersey’s maternal health challenges, with missions to advance community-based solutions to maternal mortality and birth equity and serve as a model for the wider field.
Coordinated efforts can dramatically impact community health outcomes. With your engagement, we can go from moment to movement and ensure the systems designed to support health and wellness across the nation are equitably in service to all.
