The Alliance for Community Health, Inc. is the 501c3 not-for-profit branch of the Alliance. Funding is supplied through grants, gifts and Charisma, the Alliance’s principal fundraiser.

Rx: Prescription Read to Your Child
A lifelong love of reading is fostered by Rx: Read to Your Child. Each year, Alliance members choose and stock books at Crusader Clinic’s multiple locations, where they are distributed by physicians to babies and children as they grow. The books chosen are high quality and age appropriate, and are enthusiastically received by children and parents. Rx: Read to Your Child is funded through ACHI.
