Health care in the greater Calumet County area has a friend in a local foundation known as the Calumet Area Community Health Foundation.
Since 1998, CACHF has supported medical training, education, equipment and facilities needs through various local health care organizations throughout the area.
In total, CACHF has awarded more than $4.16 million in combined financial contributions to assist the local health care effort.
Those grants have gone to local organizations, with more than $3.76 million being distributed to many recipients, including area libraries, churches, service clubs, domestic abuse shelters, schools and medical care facilities.
Another $400,000 has been awarded to more than 270 students entering the health care field from area high schools, including Chilton, New Holstein, Kiel, Hilbert, Stockbridge and Brillion.
Excitement in fulfilling goals
CACHF President Paul Hugo said, “We have been fortunate to live into the mission of the Calumet Area Community Health Foundation by contributing generously to the community health programs for the past 17 years. The impact on our health care students and organizations has been truly amazing. And, the money has all been contributed to good causes.”
“The foundation is really making an impact in local health delivery from training health care professionals to supporting equipment and facilities projects,” he added.
In recent years, CACHF has actively contributed to community agencies and organizations like Harbor House and ambulance services administering care to the greater Calumet County area.
“Things like that really excite me about the foundation. We are seeing the results of the support provided,” Hugo said.
