For the last year, the Women’s and Children’s Health Services program in Delaware County has been under the umbrella of the recently formed Crozer-Keystone Community Foundation, according to a report in The Swarthmorean.
The foundation marked the 25th anniversary of WCHS last month with events that put a spotlight on its marquee programs in prenatal, perinatal, and early childhood development. These programs are the cornerstone of a developing structure of services that CKCF administers in order to improve life for county residents.
“We’re really thinking about ‘What is the unique role that we can play in Delaware County?’” Sheehan said.
She said one of the things that makes CKCF differ from other, similar nonprofits in the area is its aim to be a community foundation.
“The assets we inherited have to be focused on improving health in Delaware County,” she said. “But any additional dollars we bring to the table since the sale, for a variety of different purposes, are designated to improve the county more broadly.”
