Who We Are
Frontier Health Foundation is a nonprofit corporation that operates as the charitable and educational arm of Frontier Health. The Foundation helps ensure the continued ability of providing the highest quality behavioral health and vocational services to the communities and individuals served. Our work sustains the fight to eradicate stigma and discrimination surrounding mental and behavioral health through advocacy, fund-raising and building public awareness.
To ensure Frontier Health’s ability to deliver high-quality behavioral health and vocational services to the communities and individuals we serve while working to eradicate social stigma and discrimination surrounding mental and behavioral health through advocacy, fundraising, and building public awareness.
We envision a community in which all people have hope, knowledge, and access to the high-quality care needed to recover from mental illnesses, substance use disorders, and the affects that trauma has had in their lives.
