Collaborating with community stakeholders to help serve underserved populations

Veterans Housing Program

NCHP is working in Yuma and Pinal counties to help end homelessness for veterans and their families.

National Community Health Partners has implemented a transportation system (ADA Mini Buses) within both counties in order to transport qualified veterans and families to needed services identified through a comprehensive assessment process. Each household has been assigned a case manager who assists with addressing housing stability assistance, health care services, legal issues, education/vocational goals, rent, utility, and security payments, moving costs, financial planning, and child care.

Highlights of NCHP's 'National Community Housing' Program

  • Case managers work individually with veterans to establish their housing status and needs, and try to determine if there are underlying causes for short or long term housing complications that need to be addressed.
  • Stabilize housing situation for veterans at risk of becoming homeless or engaging 'Rapid Re-housing' for those who are in need of a stable housing solution.
  • Work with Community Based Outpaient Clinics in the target counties to help veterans without documentation obtain the documentation proving their veteran status, necessary to obtain services reserved for veterans.
  • Provide linkage to care or support assistance if the participant is in need of long-term and ongoing programs such as long-term homelessness or mental health treatment.
  • Assess and help address income issues including job skills, training, education and risk factors.
  • Provide transportation assistance to and from appointments for dispersed participants lacking personal vehicles or other forms of reliable transportation.

Who We Are

Formerly Border Health Foundation (BHF), we recently changed our name to National Community Health Partners (NCHP) to reflect the expansion and scope of our services.

Based in Tucson, Arizona, with a regional office in New Orleans, our organization was founded in 1984 to address the health needs of border populations. Since then we have developed a strong national presence providing education and services to minority and underserved populations in 44 states and two U.S. territories.

We have housed over 70 public health programs and services promoting the health and well-being of individuals and communities across the U.S. It is our goal to improve health outcomes through innovative services and compelling educational programs.

NCHP provides training and technical assistance to community based organizations and health departments serving minority populations at risk for HIV/AIDS. We implement programs that educate teens and parents about sensitive issues related to drugs and alcohol, premature sexual activity, and juvenile delinquency. We provide services addressing substance abuse, tobacco cessation, environmental health, nutrition and positive family relationships.

National Community Health Partners is prepared to assist your organization.
