Community Partnerships

Healthy Children, Healthy Communities

Our Community Partnerships were born out of a desire for our 30 communities to have a more personal source of support. It is our goal to find a Community Partner for each community in our Community Health Development Program.


Our Partners stay connected:  Our Community Partners receive updates, stories, and photos as your community is visited throughout the year.  They are able to watch how your partnership makes a difference throughout the year. 

"I love the community

partnership program because

I know God is using our gifts to

change an entire community."


                -Bruce Carter

​“When the clinic numbers are read after a team visits in one of our communities, there is a sense of awe in the room, knowing we also touched each of those lives.”
