News Release

MERRIAM, KANSAS – The REACH Healthcare Foundation this week announced it will designate $200,000 in new “opportunity funds” to support regional projects focused on mental health and the launch of health insurance marketplaces in Kansas and Missouri. The $200,000 came through a recent contribution made to the REACH Foundation from Community Health Group, the successor organization to Health Midwest, the nonprofit health care system that provided the REACH Foundation’s original assets.

Brenda Sharpe, president and CEO of the REACH Foundation, said the “unanticipated receipt of $200,000 will allow the foundation to respond to opportunities emerging this year with the launch of health insurance marketplaces and local efforts to host a regional dialogue on mental health care in the fall.”
