How you can help

Pillars Community Health is a nonprofit provider of health and social services; the organization is the result of a 2018 merger between Pillars and Community Nurse Health Center. We strive to be a powerful catalyst for change, providing local children and adults with the comprehensive health care and social and educational tools they need to overcome the wide array of challenges they face. The support we receive from generous individuals is key to our ability to continue meeting the emergent needs of our community.

Whether sheltering families from domestic violence, providing restorative dental care, changing the conversation about sexual assault on college campuses, providing access to preschool for families that might not otherwise be able to afford it, counseling individuals recovering from opioid abuse, empowering clients with mental illness, or helping patients manage chronic illnesses—change is possible when we work together. By supporting our mission, you can help sustain these wonderful programs to heal, care for, and educate individuals in need within our community.

The Power of One

At a time when there are many societal issues bubbling to the surface – spiking rates of suicide, vast reports of sexual assault, the opioid epidemic, high costs of health care and child care, and so on--it can feel overwhelming. You may wonder: What can I do? To that, we answer: Remember the power of ONE. Change starts with one person or one organization deciding to do something for someone else.
