Alluvion Health Foundation

Mission

As a 501(c)3, the Alluvion Health Foundation was organized in 2020 as the fundraising and advocacy arm of the community health center, Alluvion Health. By connecting its donors to Alluvion’s services elevating the feedback of Alluvion’s patients, and providing powerful community health advocacy, the Foundation redefines healthcare opportunities by addressing persistent gaps in the region. As a locally owned, 501(c)3, Alluvion Health is the community’s designated Federally Qualified Health Care Center (FQHC). As an FQHC, Alluvion Health is the stable source of primary care, medical, and dental services for the uninsured and underinsured in our community. At the Foundation, we raise funds that go beyond traditional healthcare into areas that improve health outcomes.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

School-Based Healthcare

This important program allows earlier intervention, attention, and access for students, staff, and community members to receive comprehensive medical and mental health services within Alluvion Health clinic sites located at schools.
Expanding access to a clinic that students and residents feel is part of their school and community reduces anxiety and resistance to seeking care. Additionally, when health and education come together, great things happen. Attendance improves. Conditions like asthma and diabetes are better managed. Mental health issues and dental needs get immediate attention in a safe environment in a safe, nurturing place without the barriers that families too often face.
Alluvion continues to increase school-based services, growing to 300% in the last year and serving 1,948 patients with 5,428 visits in 2021. The Foundation's support of this program is to build further investment in our schools for exam rooms, lab space, and clinical supplies for immunization.

Through Foundation support, the Alluvion Health mobile unit travels throughout the Golden Triangle and offers a range of dental services, including assessments, education, walk-in care, emergency treatments, and preventative and restorative care. Early oral health interventions and routine dental care can significantly increase the quality of life and improve physical, emotional, and mental health. Mobile care also removes any additional barriers to care and assists in the link to overall wellbeing.
The ripple effect of one encounter can create substantial benefits for young families through open-door access to a full spectrum of health center services. Alluvion's supportive, enabling, and coordination services empower parents and families to better care for their young as well as provide necessary resources to assist families in addressing barriers to stability. Parents who access services can model good dental care to their children while improving their own health.

Response in the moments of crisis can mean the difference between life and death. Alluvion Health's dedicated team of behavioral health providers, in partnership with emergency responders, is proud to provide a robust response, both during times of crisis, and in the aftermath.
Oftentimes, the emergency room or detention center are the only places to bring an individual experiencing a mental health crisis.
The Crisis Intervention program allows for a third-tier response that incorporates Alluvion Health's behavioral health providers into emergency response efforts. By including this team, emergency response personnel are able to divert patients away from the emergency room and the detention center, allowing proper support from individual and community resources.
The Foundation offers support of this program through ongoing professional certification and credentialing, and education management of the team of professionals within the collaborative.

1 in 44 children in the U.S has autism. In 2021, most children in the U.S. were still being diagnosed after age 4, even though autism can be reliably diagnosed as early as 18 months. In Montana, however, the age of diagnosis is much higher, due to a lack of access to critical resources. In Montana, Missoula and Billings are the only cities that provide a comprehensive autism evaluation in the entire state. Montana, a state that is 147,000 sq. miles, a state that is the length of Washington D.C. to Chicago.
Caregivers wait over 2 years to receive an autism diagnosis and travel 2 to 4 hours, contingent upon Montana's inclement weather, to travel to these areas, to receive the half-day, comprehensive evaluation. Then, they wait 2 more years for services within Great Falls. Early intervention is key. With your investment, we can provide free and reduced diagnosis, & intervention back to our region with a mobile autism bus- we can offset caregiver burdens, create access, & return equity.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Alluvion Health Foundation speaks to a need in this community and a gap that no one else can fill. The Alluvion Health Foundation aims to provide a lifeline for those in need, ensuring that everyone will have access to the overall care that they deserve.

Provide Resources to Enhance Overall Quality of Life: The Alluvion Health Foundation prides itself on its advocacy in the community. By listening to our stakeholders, the Foundation will identify ongoing community health needs. The Foundation will work with donors to invest in development opportunities and seek to identify community needs for overlooked populations, services, and methods. The Foundation will also explore accessibility solutions to ease healthcare accessibility and gaps in service.

Enhance Access to High-Quality Patient-Centered Care: In Montana, strengthening access is a matter of creating new innovations to eradicate the many geographic and sociodemographic barriers to healthcare. This means delivering care remotely, through mobile services, or improving upon service delivery methods. If our organization is to continue changing lives and improving conditions that are lasting, transformative, and measurable, the Foundation must focus on improving outcomes that address the ongoing disparities that influence access to healthcare. This means that the Foundation will support infrastructure projects and investments that strengthen overall community health and the Foundation will pursue innovative healthcare delivery models.

Ensure Long-Term Sustainability: Ensuring viability and long-term sustainability requires a clear vision, funding priorities, and a diverse strategy for revenue generation. Alluvion Health Foundation seeks to establish strong oversight that ensures long-term, lasting donor relationships for responsible and sustainable gifting management, transparency, funding, development, and grant capability. To achieve this, the Foundation has ensured organizational, fiscal, and strategic fundraising objectives to ensure long-term growth. The Foundation has also created a strategic and diverse stewardship plan that supports the Foundation's Focus Areas and Objectives and establishes long-term, lasting donor relationships for responsible gifting management.
