Mission The Virginia Health Care Foundation is a public-private partnership dedicated to increasing access to primary health care for uninsured and medically underserved Virginians.

Health Safety Net Impact: Since 1992, VHCF has been instrumental in expanding and strengthening Virginia's health care safety net, growing it from 33 sites to 204.

Children's Health Impact: Through aggressive enrollment initiatives, more than 92,000 children have been enrolled in state-sponsored health insurance programs by VHCF grantees since 2000.

Dental Care Impact: VHCF dental grants totaling more than $12 million have helped establish over half of the dental safety net programs in the Commonwealth (46 of 76).
Mental Health Impact: In addition to providing a variety of grants to provide basic mental health services in free clinics and community health centers during the years, VHCF has taken a leadership role in introducing the integration of behavioral health services with medical care within Virginia's health care safety net organizations. This is expanding and enhancing the delivery of mental health services to Virginia's uninsured.  In 2017, VHCF launched "Beyond Blue", a new $1.5 million behavioral health initiative.
Prescription Medication Impact: VHCF's innovative software, The Pharmacy Connection (TPC), has been used by more than 200 organizations to obtain nearly $4.6 billion in free prescription medications for more than 300,000  uninsured Virginians with chronic illnesses since 1999.
  • Funding to support special projects and initiatives that help increase access to health care for uninsured and underserved Virginians (visit our website for specific program details.)
VHCF was created in 1992 by the Virginia General Assembly and its Joint Commission on Health Care to promote and fund innovative public-private partnerships that increase access to primary health care for uninsured and medically underserved Virginians.
Since its inception, VHCF has leveraged an average of $11 in cash, health services, and other in-kind contributions for every dollar expended.
