Caring for Our Neighbors

  • PHNCF believes in caring for our own – those who live in the communities we serve. Donations to Caring for Our Neighbors ensure that PHN patients are able to receive the prescription medications needed for their chronic conditions, as well as helping youth receive skills training in preparation for life after high school.


    Many maintenance medications cost consumers several hundred dollars a month, and we are able to provide prescription assistance to PHN patients in need. Assistance is provided for life-sustaining medications, such as high blood pressure, behavioral health, cancer, diabetes, and heart medications. Without taking their prescribed medications, patients may develop worsening symptoms or complications, leading to further healthcare and emergency room costs. Since its inception in 2013, more than $14,000 has been distributed to help patients adhere to their maintenance medications.


    We are committed to providing young adults with the tools they need to succeed in life. Reaching for Success is a free mentoring program offered to high school students ages 16-18. Various workshop sessions prepare students for life after high school graduation by educating them on skills such as resume building, interview skills, basic banking knowledge, job seeking assistance, and college application tips. Subject matter experts present on each topic and the students complete hands-on activities to hone their skills, and each participant leaves the program with a complete resume to begin using. Reaching for Success is currently offered in Mercer, Lawrence, and Clarion counties. If you are interested in partnering with PHNCF to host a Reaching for Success program in your area (must be within a PHN service area), please contact us at 724-981-2875.
