Funding Priority Area

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 priority during these initial years is significantly aligned with our vision across one area of focus – Access to Care – including behavioral and physical health.

Our research, learnings and shared dialogue continues to reaffirm that access to care is a critical community need. Through these findings, we are committed to helping the organizations that make it easier for people to navigate, understand, and use information and services to improve behavioral and physical health. While narrow in scope, we believe our focused concentration towards funding initiatives on this important area will allow for greater impact across the community.

Access to Care  We believe that our investment in addressing access to care will help to make it easier for people to navigate, understand, and use information and services to take care of their health.

“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.”
