Borough of Freehold

Initiative: Freehold Improving Patient Access Project
Grant years: 2022–23

The Borough of Freehold is collaborating with Neighborhood Connections to Health and the Freehold Family Health Center to assess gaps in access to health care for those with disabilities and other underserved populations such as LBGTQ, undocumented people, and those most at risk for chronic disease.

The project aims to create a plan to address the barriers, educate the community on Freehold Family Health Center services, and make meaningful connections to ensure better access for individuals with disabilities. Community health days, focus groups, and an advisory committee including people with disabilities will inform policy changes and amendments to the Health Center’s strategic plan.
