Overall health and wellness goes beyond medical care. It starts in your home and in your community.
Although healthcare may commonly be associated to doctor visits and medication, total health starts with daily needs. We help our communities thrive through community-based, low-cost resources.
Social determinants of health (social health) are the non-medical factors that make up much of your overall health. As much as 80% of health outcomes are determined outside of hospital walls.
