History

The city of Norfolk was one of 41 communities nationwide to receive a Turning Point grant from the Kellogg Foundation in 1999.  The Norfolk Turning Point Planning Initiative was part of a national effort to change and strengthen the ways in which states and local communities protect and improve public health.  Key stakeholders began collaborating to improve access to  health care and medications/pharmaceuticals.  In 2004, Sentara Foundation commissioned Community Health Solutions to perform a Community Health Survey which revealed the need for improved access to basic health care, specialty care, mental/behavioral health and dental care.    Access Partnership was formally established as a direct result of the Turning Point Iniative and Sentara Community Health Survey.  Once started, Access Partnership expanded its network to bring together community stakeholders committed to securing resources and mobilizing efforts to eliminate major gaps in health care for Hampton Roads' uninsured and under-insured residents.
