CASA GRANDE — As part of Arizona Complete Health’s Community Reinvestment Program, Horizon Health and Wellness has been awarded a $25,000 grant.
Horizon’s primary care and behavioral health services have served patients during the coronavirus pandemic. The insurance company’s award will help Horizon to provide outreach, resource connection, food, supplies and education through its “Horizon Helps” program.
“This grant could not come at a more appropriate moment. Our ‘Horizon Helps’ program has been instrumental in addressing the well-being of Pinal County residents over the last few months,” said Cheri DeBree, director of community initiatives at Horizon. “These funds will allow us to expand the program and meet the needs of our most vulnerable populations. We value our longstanding relationship with Arizona Complete Health and appreciate their rapid response to the needs of organizations like ours.”
Horizon, which has locations in Casa Grande, Florence and Apache Junction, was the first provider in Pinal County to set up a drive-up COVID-19 testing center. Horizon has also disseminated educational health and resource information, collaborating with partners to ensure basic needs are met, and providing outreach to vulnerable populations.
“Arizona Complete Health is pleased to partner with Horizon to support the important work it’s doing in Pinal County,” said Greg Taylor, Arizona Complete Health regional vice president of community affairs. “From early COVID testing to community outreach and increased telemedicine offerings, Horizon has more than demonstrated its commitment to Arizonans’ health and well-being.”
