Our sister organization, CCHN operates a number of programs that allow uninsured patients, who do not qualify for other sources of funding, to gain access to certain diagnostic and treatment services. Currently, CCHN is managing funding for breast cancer diagnostic, oral health, and mental health services, as well as specialty care treatment services for individuals with HIV & AIDS. All funds are accessed through participating community health centers.[divider][/divider]
Breast Cancer Diagnostic Pool funded by the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, San Diego Affiliate, Breast Cancer Prevention Fund, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Inland Empire, and Mammograms in Action (Barbells for Boobs) - provides funding for necessary diagnostic services (e.g. mammography, ultrasound, and breast biopsies) for individuals with breast health needs.
Dental Examination, Care Coordination, and Treatment funded by the First 5 Commission of San Diego through the Oral Healthcare Initiative. This program provides funding for children ages 0-5 and pregnant women to receive a wide range of oral health care services.
Mental Health Treatment through the Mental Health and Primary Care Integration Project, funded by the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) and the County of San Diego.

HIV/AIDS Specialty Care Pools funded by the County of San Diego under the national HRSA Ryan White Treatment Extension Act, to provide funding for people living with HIV/AIDS who are in need of medical, dental, and home health/hospice services.
