About Us

Project HEALTH is a rapidly-growing national nonprofit that works to break the link between poverty and poor health. To achieve our vision of a health care system that addresses resource needs as a standard part of patient care, Project HEALTH uses a simple but effective model: in the clinics where our Family Help Desk programs operate, physicians can “prescribe” food, housing, job training, or other resources for their patients as routinely as they do medication. Located in the waiting room and staffed by college volunteers, our Family Help Desks “fill” these prescriptions by connecting patients with key resources.
