As an organization built by the community, for the community, we work every day within the community to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors and help to ensure access to health care.
By the Community. For the Community. In the Community.
HealthFinders Collaborative (HFC) is a non-profit community health center which provides a primary access point to health services, including medical, dental, and wellness care for the marginalized families of Rice County, Minnesota. Through primary care, patient education and advocacy, and community-based wellness programming, HFC works to collaborate and engage communities in their own health.
As an organization built by the community, for the community, we work every day within the community to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors and help to ensure access to healthcare. The unprecedented times of living in a COVID-19 world are no different.
Offering Stability, Despite Unsteady Times
In a world that is constantly being altered by this global pandemic, we remain steadfast in living out our mission to ensure everyone in the Rice County area has access to healthcare and necessary resources.
Impacts of COVID-19 may have led to the recent postponement of our annual gala, our biggest fundraiser of the year, but we have not let the virus postpone our work.
Each day, we're working harder than ever to ensure that:
Culturally-appropriate resources, videos, and content are provided – in multiple languages – to our patients and neighbors who may not have consistent access to reliable information in the language they speak (Spanish, Somali.)
Our patients’ regular, ongoing, and chronic medical needs are being met, even during this time. To support social distancing, we’ve taken measures to conduct some visits/screenings virtually.
We are here to support our patients holistically. Our advocacy team helps folks who have been laid off navigate the difficulty of unemployment paperwork, applications, insurance, etc. We also assist in the health insurance enrollment process.
We provide consistent, up-to-the-moment information about our clinics and helpful resources through our coronavirus webpage – healthfindersmn.org/coronavirus.
Support This Work
Each day, our patients and community members look to us for crucial information to help them stay healthy and safe during these challenging times. Will you support this access and help HealthFinders continue to provide stability in unsteady times?
