Hamdard Center for Health & Human Services approached VNA with its plan to pursue FQHC designation and made an effective case for funding to support a nurse practitioner.
VNA Foundation is a grantmaking foundation serving the Chicago metropolitan area. We provide financial support to nonprofit organizations that offer home- and community-based healthcare to the medically underserved.
Our focus has been unwavering for the past 100 years: helping the men, women and children of Chicago who lack access to basic health services.
VNA Foundation held our Annual Luncheon on September 12, 2013, during which we recognized Pilsen Homeless Services with the 2013 Anne M. Davis Mobile Health Award and were inspired by comments from three Chicago Area Schweitzer Nursing Fellows.
Thresholds’ new Women Veterans Health Project will provide comprehensive treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder and military sexual trauma while connecting veterans to employment, housing and family services. It is expected to serve as a model for women veteran-serving programs throughout the state and country.
