Cabarrus Public Health Interest
CPHI Purpose and Relationship with CHA
Cabarrus Public Health Interest is a 501c3 non-profit organization affiliated with the Public Health Authority of Cabarrus County (DBA: Cabarrus Health Alliance), the official public health agency for Cabarrus County, NC. Cabarrus Public Health Interest is a legal entity organized and operated for the benefit of public health programs and services provided by Cabarrus Health Alliance and its collaborating partners. The mission of Cabarrus Public Health Interest is investing in the improvement of individual and community health in Cabarrus County through awareness of and fundraising for Cabarrus Health Alliance.
Traditional public health funding is often restrictive--- it is provided for a specific public health program or service and offers little if no flexibility to respond to Cabarrus County’s community priorities or needs. While these preventive and treatment programs are valued and essential, other types of funding are needed to effectively pivot towards emerging and disparate needs that impact individual and community health in the county. Cabarrus Public Health Interest makes it possible for CHA’s work to receive other types of funding through non-profit grants, donations, and contributions.
Mission Statement: Investing in the improvement of individual and community health in Cabarrus County.
Vision: We envision a community where health-related needs are addressed financially, collaboratively, and responsibly for the betterment of all Cabarrus County residents.
Tagline: Giving health and wellness to our community through our community.
