By providing the operating support to local nonprofit organizations, we help open the door to essential health services that ultimately support MetroWest individuals and families.

Our Goal for Basic Health Needs

The goal of the foundation’s basic health needs strategy is to provide operating support to local nonprofit organizations that provide essential health services and supports to MetroWest individuals and families. This flexible, multi-year funding allows grantees to focus on serving those most in need by creating a safety-net of essential health services. Funding through this initiative is by invitation only. Basic Health Need grants are currently supporting grantees working in primary care, behavioral health, oral health care, health insurance enrollment, medical-legal partnerships, homelessness and food insecurity.
