History of the Health Fund

The Health Initiative Health Fund was launched in 2008 to help address the needs of under and uninsured lesbians in our community. The Fund was expanded in 2011 to include any uninsured or under-insured LGBTQ person. It is more important today than ever before. The Health Fund is truly “us helping each other.” If you need the assistance of the Health Fund, apply here. If you can give, please donate here. We average four referrals per week, and anticipate an increase as we expand our list of low-cost service providers and types of services available. Please remember, without your contribution* there is no Health Fund. *Contributions to the Health Fund are earmarked for healthcare expenses and are tax deductible.
