Funding Priority Areas

Concentrating on Gaps in Care of Health

Three Arches Foundation fulfills its mission by awarding grants to organizations that provide services and programs focused on improving the health and well-being of our local residents and by working collaboratively within the community to further assess key unmet needs. Our priorities for the next several years are significantly aligned with our vision across two areas of focus – Access to Care and Behavioral Health.

These priority areas were determined based on research conducted during our transition process, including environmental scans that identified gaps in community health that could be impacted by further investment. Through these findings, as well as the feedback received from a myriad of community funders, providers and leaders in healthcare throughout Northeast Ohio, we purposefully chose Access to Care and Behavioral Health as our initial areas of priority. While narrow in scope, we believe our focused concentration on these important areas will allow for greater impact across the community.

In an effort to achieve more significant impact, Three Arches Foundation will also consider investments in the general care of health for the community in addition to these immediate priority areas.

“Mental health disorders also have a serious impact on physical health and are associated with the prevalence, progression, and outcome of some of today’s most pressing chronic diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Mental health disorders can have harmful and long-lasting effects—including high psychosocial and economic costs—not only for people living with the disorder, but also for their families, schools, workplaces, and communities.”
