The Health First Collaborative (HFC) is an incubator and amplifier of community ideas for better, more equitable health solutions. By supporting organizations that are redefining health, we are ensuring disinvested communities – Black, Latino, uninsured and others – can reach and maintain healthy lives.

The Work

Supported by over 20 funding collaborators, HFC invests in community-led, innovation solutions that address the root causes of racial health inequities and improve the physical, mental and social well-being of Chicagoland residents.
