Give the Gift that Keeps on Giving

Erie Family Health Centers is dedicated to providing compassionate, affordable, high quality health care to all, yet the cost of providing such care significantly exceeds what we earn. This revenue gap limits Erie’s ability to serve more people.

Medicaid reimbursements and sliding fee payments from uninsured patients don’t come close to covering the average cost of a patient visit to Erie. The rest must come from contributed support, including donations from generous people like you.

Thank you for helping Erie be there for people who worry they have nowhere to go. Together, we can provide relief for someone’s chronic pain, hope for our neighbors in need, and the peace of mind that can change lives.

  • The Reach Out and Read evidence-based program builds on the unique relationship between parents and medical providers to develop critical early reading skills in children, beginning in infancy. 

    Gifts for Reach Out and Read ensure that Erie doctors can continue to provide books to children and encourage early reading skills during their pediatric exams. Studies have shown that families who benefit from Reach Out and Read read together more frequently. As a result, their children enter school with stronger language skills than their peers, and they often score higher on vocabulary tests.
