At the core of AmeriHealth Caritas Pennsylvania's success is its mission. In addition to providing access to quality health care for its members, AmeriHealth Caritas partners with the communities it serves. Through participation in neighborhood functions and community outreach events, AmeriHealth Caritas makes a difference in the areas where our members live. We lend our support and work with groups who address social issues that affect health care, such as homelessness, domestic violence, unemployment and education.
Our community programs include:
- Community health programs
AmeriHealth Caritas works closely with community leaders and organizations to develop programs to promote the health of our members and our communities.
We can't do it alone. The Health Education Advisory Committee, also known as HEAC, is a health education and outreach committee that we work with to develop and implement programs that improve health outcomes for disadvantaged families throughout the Lehigh/Capital service area.
If you are planning a community activity, such as a health fair, we will be happy to attend to provide information on preventive health initiatives. AmeriHealth Caritas can also provide speakers for your school, civic or faith-based groups.
