About Chase Brexton Health Services
For over 30 years, Chase Brexton Health Services has been providing services to a diverse population including the GLBT community, the Mt. Vernon community and anyone facing unequal access to quality health care in a compassionate and supportive environment.
Your generous contributions enable Chase Brexton to provide the health care services to all persons, regardless of their ability to pay. Because no program at Chase Brexton is 100% funded, we rely on contributions from the community to fill the gap between income and expenses.
Since 89% of every dollar given goes directly to support patient services, most of your contribution goes directly to providing for those in need. And while grant funding remains flat or decreases, the increasing cost of health care exceeds the standard 3% annual increase in revenue.
