About Us

woman helping a family

Founded in 2011, AmeriHealth Caritas Partnership promotes health outreach to vulnerable and underserved communities across the country. Our award-winning, evidence-based programs teach healthy behaviors and healthy lifestyles, helping to:

  • Improve quality of life in disadvantaged communities.
  • Manage and prevent chronic diseases.
  • Reduce health disparities and improve health equity.

We work with community stakeholders, providers, and other nonprofits to address the health issues these neighborhoods face every day. We also partner with academic organizations to research and evaluate our programs, making sure we’re delivering the most effective outcomes.

We offer a variety of wellness programs, community resources, and professional development opportunities to help build healthy communities.
