$20,000 Goal

We know that health is more than healthcare: mental health, health insurance, housing and employment are just some of the issues that affect our health, and now more than ever, we have been there to help. Grand County Rural Health Network offers access, resources, and support for all our Grand County neighbors to lead their healthiest lives:

•    We provide culturally sensitive client care-coordination, plus health education and navigation with our Patient Navigator Program. 

•    We ensure healthcare services are available and accessible, especially for our low-income or uninsured neighbors, with our ACHES and PAINS Healthcare Voucher Program.

•    We increase access to health insurance with our Health Coverage Guide Program.

•    We offer training and support to lift up community voices, sharing opportunities to be heard at decision-making tables through our Community Leader Group.

•    We are a change agent. We advocate for our clients and our community, at the individual, state, and federal level on issues that impact health. Because our community is only as healthy as the people who call it home.

We know that your donation time and dollars are in great demand. With your support, we will continue to advocate for and support the health of all Grand County residents. Thank you!

Background Statement

The origin of the Network dates to the mid-1990s when community stakeholders began meeting to address healthcare access problems for county residents. Based on widespread support for addressing healthcare challenges, the Network was formally organized in 1999 and given seed money from a Rural Network Development Grant in 2000. The Network was formally incorporated in 2001 and received its federal 501(c)3 tax-exempt status in 2002. The Network’s scope of work during its first several years of operation focused on the development of programs to address healthcare gaps in the community. Since that time, the Network has focused on assessing and responding to health needs through an equity lens as well as ways to improve and sustain our services to the underserved population of Grand County.

As a nonprofit health alliance focused on health equity, Grand County Rural Health Network offers four lines of service: direct services; advocacy; collective impact; and community organizing. Our direct services are focused on increasing access and reducing barriers to the health of our community. We provide healthcare and medical support vouchers to increase access & affordability through our ACHES and PAINS voucher program; we guide patients through the healthcare system to ensure they have the care they need when they need it with our patient navigation/promotora services; and we help residents enroll in Medicaid and the health insurance marketplace through our health coverage guide program. We provide a platform for partners to create system changes through our collective impact line of service, and for impacted community members to learn leadership and advocacy skills and get their voice heard at decision-making tables through our community organizing line of service. Locally and statewide, we advocate to address health equity and to improve the quality and efficiency of the system.
