The Colorado Health Foundation
The Colorado Health Foundation (TCHF) has awarded Rocky Mountain Rural Health (RMRH) a grant to support our Community Health Workers (CHWs) in bringing awareness to the importance of Advance Care Planning and educating clients in the process of completing Advance Directives. We thank TCHF for their continued support and trust in what RMRH is doing to help the citizens of the South Park region of Park County. The Colorado Health Foundation is to be commended for reaching out to small rural areas to insure sustainable, quality health care is available to the community. Thank you Colorado Health Foundation.
Caring for Colorado Foundation
Funding from Caring for Colorado (CFC) has been received to allow RMRH CHWs to work on improving Transitions in Care and providing services for clients transitioning from a hospital or other facility to the home. Thank you CFC for your belief in the work that Rocky Mountain Rural Health is doing to provide sustainable and quality health care to our small rural community.
The Summit Foundation
RMRH has been awarded a grant from The Summit Foundation. These funds will be used to provide client navigation services and non-emergency transport to residents of the Fairplay / Alma area. Navigation involves assisting people in finding health care providers, medical services and durable medical equipment. RMRH navigators also help client understand their mandated health care benefits provided by the Affordable Care Act. They can also help the uninsured find an affordable health insurance plan. The non-emergent medical transport program provides clients assistance getting to doctor appointments and treatment or diagnostic appointments out of Park County. Mileage reimbursement is available to those in the Alma / Fairplay area.
Thank you to The Summit Foundation for helping us with these projects!

The Community Health Partnership (CHP) provided funding to RMRH for our CHWs to assist clients in finding Primary Care Providers as well as dental, vision, and mental health providers who accept Health First Colorado (Colorado's Medicaid Program). CHWs are able to provide health screenings to Park County residents at our outreach events which are held weekly in multiple towns in Park County. We thank CHP for helping fund so many of our programs.
