Camden, NJ (January 1, 2019) – The Hispanic Family Center of Southern New Jersey has received a grant in the amount of $60,000 from The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey for its Pathway to Health program.
This grant from the Horizon Foundation for New Jersey will enable the Hispanic Family Center to promote health awareness and control common chronic diseases while navigating community members to available and appropriate health and social resources. The CHP consists of two components, to assist at-risk low-income underserved individuals with navigating the health system and to provide health education on a myriad of topics such as health insurance benefits, the current health system, and social determinants of health and how to address them.
