Peach State Health Plan Helps Family Find Stable Housing with Habitat for Humanity Home Build
July 30, 2018 (Atlanta, Ga.) – In an effort to promote overall wellness and create safe communities, Peach State Health Plan is proud to help to build stable and affordable housing. For the fourth time in three years, Peach State Health Plan is partnering with NW Metro Atlanta Habitat for Humanity to build a home for a family in Cobb County, Georgia.
Access to safe and affordable housing is one of the most basic yet powerful social determinants of health. When families lack stable housing, they are more likely to have other quality of life challenges such as poor health outcomes, financial hardships, and food insecurity. Peach State Health Plan is committed to helping remove these barriers so that families have a clear path to healthy living.
“Our mission is to transform the health of the community, one person at a time, and that often extends beyond medical needs,” said Patrick Healy, president and CEO, Peach State Health Plan. “Our continued partnership with NW Metro Atlanta Habitat for Humanity allows us to deliver on our mission and we proudly support organizations that help Georgians with their most basic needs.”
Earlier this year, Peach State Health Plan was also a sponsor of the 2018 “Women Build” with NW Metro Atlanta Habitat. Women volunteers organized and built the entire house from the group up. This project provided an opportunity for women to take a proactive step in serving their communities.
