Share Health Southeast Georgia
Our Mission Statement:
Share Health Southeast Georgia is dedicated to improving the health of all generations in our sixteen-county community by cultivating partnerships and providing philanthropic and advocacy support to the Southeast Health District.
Share Health Southeast Georgia was established in September of 2015 to build our region’s capacity to address the unmet health care needs of Southeast Georgia residents. The organization was initially funded through a federal Office of Rural Health Policy Rural Health Network Development Planning Grant awarded to the Ware County Board of Health and its partners. This grant provided funds to incorporate the organization, acquire nonprofit 501(c)3 status from the Internal Revenue Service, establish and provide support to a Board of Directors, engage in a five-year strategic planning process and plan for sustainability.
Share Health is currently working with partners in three southeast Georgia counties to address locally identified health needs through community-driven initiatives. In addition to these initiatives, Share Health implements a program that awards five $1,000 scholarships annually, three to high school seniors in our 16-county community aspiring to a career in a health profession and two to Public Health employees who wish to further their education.
Counties we serve: Appling, Atkinson, Bacon, Brantley, Bulloch, Candler, Charlton, Clinch, Coffee, Evans, Jeff Davis, Pierce, Tattnall, Toombs, Ware and Wayne.
