About Us

We live by the saying "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure". Our mission is to empower healthy and thriving communities by building bridges between housing and health. We do this by providing care coordination, benefit enrollment, and wraparound services to thousands of residents of affordable housing.

We believe income and zip code should not be a barrier to accessible and convenient services that support our health. Not only do we believe everyone deserves this, but we know that investing in people upstream benefits our broader community in ways that we can measure and prove.

One of our core values is "creativity wins the day". We know we will not overcome age-old challenges with approaches that have been tried before. We encourage our team to remove the constraints of what we think we know about healthcare or housing and think instead, "if we had all the resources we needed, what could we be doing every day to make this a great place to live where people can be healthy and thrive?" And then we figure out how we make that happen.

We are looking for creative and kind teammates to join us in this journey.

Our values:

  • Residents come first
  • Creativity wins the day
  • Caring for each other helps us care for others
  • Always Be Celebrating ("ABC"!)
  • Progress over perfection Overview:

    Ounce of Care promotes health & wellness within affordable housing communities. We provide services to residents of these communities, including scheduling appointments to save time, checking eligibility and helping apply for benefits, and providing peace of mind by staying up-to-date on insurance.
