How Your Gift Helps

YOU HAVE THE POWER TO MAKE OUR COMMUNITY BETTER

When you join Hope Lives Here, your gift directly supports the people in your community who are in need—the patients for whom Chase Brexton provides more than $3 million in uncompensated care each year. Here’s what your gift makes possible.

HOW AND WHERE YOUR DONATION WAS USED

The Hope Lives Here program goal is to expand assistance to all our Chase Brexton Centers. Year-to-date (as of June 30, 2019), you helped 105 patients receive needed care, with $9,205 used.

A LIFELINE TO BETTER HEALTH

88% of our patients live at or below the 100% poverty line. 25% are without insurance of any kind. Your gift makes sure that we can provide help when our friends and neighbors need us—no matter what.

THE TOOLS
FOR SELF-RELIANCE

Your support helps us educate and empower our patients to become active participants in their own care. For many of our patients, having the knowledge and tools for better self-care allows them to overcome hurdles and reach more goals in their lives.

INTEGRATED,
PREVENTATIVE MEDICINE

Caring for the sick is far costlier for our community than keeping the healthy well. With your gift, we can help underserved community members stay healthy with services like pediatrics and adult primary care, dental care, behavioral health, and OB/GYN.

SUPPORT THAT GOES BEYOND MEDICINE

A person’s health suffers when he or she can’t afford basic necessities like food and shelter. Your gift enables us to provide critical resources—from transportation vouchers to emergency housing—to people in need so they can focus on being well.

RAPID RESPONSE TO URGENT COMMUNITY NEEDS

Working on the front lines gives us unique insight into our community’s most urgent health care needs. Your gift gives us something more: the power to respond to those needs before it’s too late. From mental health services to transgender care, we are able to serve when the call comes. And that saves lives.

CARE WITHOUT
FEAR OR JUDGMENT

Chase Brexton began as a gay men’s health clinic in 1978, a place where one could seek care without fear or judgement. As we’ve grown, we’ve held the vision of our founders closely. With your help, we can continue to give our community members a safe place to get the expertise, tools, care, understanding—and hope—they need.
