Since Prevention Institute first developed the Community Centered Health Homes model, it has gained significant momentum. To date, over $12 million philanthropic dollars have been awarded or promised to support implementation of CCHH in six states. We are pleased to have helped catalyze these efforts, serving as a learning partner, and providing technical assistance and training. With implementation at various stages, we gain valuable insights about the different ways that CCHH is being operationalized on the ground.
