Small and Mighty: Pennsylvania Healthcare Benefit Support Program
The Pittsburgh Foundation’s Small and Mighty program awarded $15,000 to All About the Youth Community Center in 2021. The organization works to help people solve problems with health care and education.
Pennsylvania Healthcare Benefit Support Program (PHBSP) was established to fill a gap in health care benefits counseling and education in the area. It is equipped to serve a broad range of individuals, including seniors, immigrants, those for whom English is not their first language, and those experiencing low health literacy. PHBSP counselors provide educational programs to local organizations and businesses on many different topics. In response to increased demand for services since the onset of COVID-19, this grant will provide access to physical and mental health care for residents whose social, physical and mental health have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic.
The Small and Mighty grants program focuses on grant seeking for small nonprofits that are meeting basic needs in our region. Since 2016, the program has awarded funding to many nonprofit organizations with budgets of less than $600,000. A list of all Small and Mighty Grantees is on the Foundation’s website.
