EHP Donation to Support Adult Immigrant Graduation
Your health and well-being are influenced by far more than just nutrition, physical activity and preventive care. Many social factors, such as education, income, transportation, and housing influence an individual's health. These factors are often referred to as social determinants of health.
Johns Hopkins Employer Health Programs (EHP) has a giving program called CATCH (Community Action that Cares About Health) that aims to advance efforts to overcome social determinants of health. With a donation of $1,000 to the Washington English Center (WEC), Johns Hopkins EHP is doing just that.
The Washington English Center (WEC) is a non-profit located in Washington D.C. that supports adult immigrants with workforce development and English literacy. WEC is holding its 2022 Spring Term Graduation Ceremony on July 1, celebrating the graduations of more than 500 students, all of whom are adult immigrants. The event will provide certificates of completion, recognize perfect attendance, and acknowledge volunteer teachers. Johns Hopkins EHP is sponsoring the graduation with its donation.
EHP is proud to support the work of local non-profits who are helping our neighbors and communities become healthier by addressing social determinants of health.
Are you a Johns Hopkins employee? Do you know of a worthy cause that could use some additional financial support? Learn more about the CATCH program and submit an application.
Note: Effective July 10, 2023, Johns Hopkins HealthCare is now Johns Hopkins Health Plans.
