Riverview Health Services, a nonprofit organization established in 1989, works with the community's low-income residents to quickly and efficiently match individuals with the health services they need.
While there are resources for low-income individuals for medical care, many people simply don't know where to go or how to ask for the help they need. Financial worries, lack of transportation, language difficulties and poor literacy block their access to health care.
Riverview's experienced advocates reduce these barriers to care. They listen to their clients' stories, assess their health situations and connect them to medical care at nearby safety-net clinics.
