Health Leads

Program support
To support Health Leads New York as it builds a sustainable business model.

Health Leads envisions a healthcare system that addresses the basic resource needs of all patients as a standard part of quality care.  The organization enables healthcare providers to “prescribe” basic resources like food and heat, and to refer patients to the program as if it were another specialty.  College students that are trained to be Health Leads Advocates then fill the prescription, connecting families to resources in the community that they need to lead healthier lives.
