Supporting members in leading healthier lives and connecting them to needed resources begins in the community. In every market we serve, we partner with local community resources —such as schools, advocacy groups, community and faith-based organizations, and local businesses — to address community priorities and specific health concerns.
Valued Partner Organizations
With the support of Atlanta CareerRise, our Georgia health plan has been able to collaborate with multiple community partners to create an innovative Apprenticeship Initiative program in the field of Information Technology that is creating new employment opportunities for young adults.
Through our partnership with Little Free Library, their Native Community Project has improved access to books and promoted literacy by placing 64 of their libraries across tribal lands encompassing several states.
“The Turtle Mountain Chippewa (Ojibwa) Reservation sits south of the Canadian border just east of central North Dakota. The area, like most reservations, is plagued with poverty and unemployment. Because of the poverty buying books is not a priority or often even an option. The Little Free Library will provide the only community library on the Turtle Mountain Reservation in a location that is highly accessible to the community, both to children and adults.”
We have partnered with the non-profit organization Family Services, Inc. in Maryland since 2002, serving on their Policy Council and Health Advisory Board, as well as supporting numerous community events and programs. Within the past year alone, over 700 parents have attended health educations classes that we facilitated on topics ranging from nutrition to oral health to community safety.
