Episcopal Health Foundation publishes Annual Report, highlights devastation from Harvey

Episcopal Health Foundation publishes Annual Report, highlights devastation from Harvey

The Episcopal Health Foundation has published its 2017 Annual Report. This year’s report highlights the devastation of Hurricane Harvey and its continuing impact on health in Texas. Plus, the annual report breaks down the $33 million given in grants and foundation’s impact on local congregations in Texas.

Though the EHF has made enormous strides, its annual report notes that “Texas still ranks worst in the US for ‘access and affordability of care.’” Particular concern is raised about mounting health concerns in the rural parts of the state.

According to their website,

“EHF was established through the 2013 transfer of the St. Luke’s Episcopal Health System by the Episcopal Diocese of Texas to Catholic Health Initiatives. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation that operates as a supporting organization of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas pursuant to Section 509(a)(3)(B)(i) of the Internal Revenue Code.”

“The mission of the Episcopal Health Foundation is to advance the Kingdom of God with specific focus on human health and well-being through grants, research, and initiatives in support of the work of the Diocese.”

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
