Our roots in Delaware County are deep. When Prospect Medical Holdings Inc. acquired Crozer-Keystone Health System in 2016, it ceased being a nonprofit organization. Federal law requires that the nonprofit assets of the original entity be set aside in a fully separate and independent charity. That paved the way for our opening in July 1, 2016 as the largest Delaware county community foundation and we inherited several outstanding public health programs that have been addressing critical needs in the county for many years.
The programs of The Foundation for Delaware County improve maternal and birth outcomes, maternal, child, and adolescent health, parenting capacity, and family self-sufficiency among high-risk, low-income families in Delaware County. In integrated fashion these programs work to avoid duplication, and meet the needs of individuals and young Delaware County families, helping them to thrive and improve life prospects for all.
