CVS Health Foundation invests in CMHA to support Access to Healthcare

CMHA was awarded the CVS Health Foundation grant as part of its 2023 Hometown Fund, which supports the communities the company’s headquarters call home. The $25,000 grant will help CMHA to serve and support our Waterbury child and family programs.

“When people have access to consistent health care and are equipped with the supporting services like affordable housing and healthy food, they are better positioned to improve their health,” said Sheryl Burke, senior vice president of corporate social responsibility and chief sustainability officer, CVS Health. “Our Hometown Fund grantees selected this year serve as examples of the ongoing work that is the focus of our philanthropic programs.”

These funds are part of $2 million in grants from the CVS Health Foundation awarded to nonprofits throughout Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts to help bolster organizations working toward improving health outcomes and creating a healthier, more equitable future for all. The CVS Health Foundation concentrated its investments in organizations working to increase access to health care services for underinsured or uninsured populations and improving health outcomes for individuals with chronic diseases – with a heightened focus on heart disease and mental health. It also awarded grants to organizations addressing health-related social needs, including affordable housing, workforce training and food insecurity initiatives.

The CVS Health Foundation Hometown Fund was created in 2022 to support CVS Health’s neighbors and local communities who are working toward improving health outcomes locally. For more information about the Hometown Fund, click here.
