Established in 2005, Green Tree Community Health Foundation, a not-for-profit public charity, is a community health advocate, whose purpose is to improve the health of Northwest Philadelphia and Eastern Montgomery County. The Foundation does so by identifying areas of vulnerability and partnering with organizations whose work addresses these needs. Through ongoing needs assessments, the Foundation continues to identify needs in these communities and provides funding to organizations whose work will address these needs. Additionally, the Foundation looks for opportunities to develop initiatives where it can fund and provide needed services directly. The Foundation seeks to have a positive impact on current and emerging health issues and risks, empowering residents in its service area to access health services and to value, embrace and maintain their health.

The Foundation's focus is on these specific areas: The frail elderly; children and families; the under and uninsured. Where appropriate, the foundation favors programs aimed at prevention.
