Supporting a new system of care rooted in community
through coordinated efforts and trust-based partnerships.

With over 70 combined years of expertise and a deep network of partners in philanthropy, government affairs, policy-making, and grassroots advocacy, CHAP is leading efforts to recenter health in communities.

Our work sits at the intersection of government and community, recognizing that philanthropy is most effective as a connective tissue between the two and as an accelerant to community-based solutions moving towards sustainability.
