Mission + Vision + Guiding Stars


Creating stronger community health systems through strategic collaboration and catalytic investments.


A compassionate ecosystem of care that is equitable, financially sustained, and powered by the lived experiences of a community-based workforce.​

Guiding Stars

We navigate priorities and resource allocation by setting course on our desired outcomes. If we are successful, these guiding stars will lead to:


  • A community health workforce that is actively engaged in all care-giving settings including state and local governments, community-based organizations, and the private sector where appropriate
  • Maternal and community health policies and financing mechanisms that support equity
  • Models of integrated clinical and community care that are spreading and scaling
  • Private philanthropic partnerships that are aligned with government efforts
  • Partnerships with the private sector that support community and public health systems
