Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The mission of the Health Federation of Philadelphia is to improve access to and quality of health care services for underserved and vulnerable individuals and families. Since 1983, The Health Federation has served as a network of the community health centers in Southeastern Pennsylvania, providing a forum for the region's federally qualified health centers and the Philadelphia Department of Public Health to collaborate and mobilize resources for their shared goals of improving the health of the population by expanding access to high quality care.
Over the past 25 years, building on our work with health centers, HFP has developed additional programs and expertise. Our training and technical assistance arm supports capacity building within the public health system and human service organizations throughout the region. Through direct service programs, HFP serves some of the neediest families in our community, focusing primarily on support for young children and their families. By taking an integrated approach to our work with health centers, systems and families, we ensure that each aspect of our work informs and advances our mission.
