What information we collect

The Ravenswood Family Health Center provides health care for the underserved, uninsured, and most vulnerable low-income residents of communities in southeastern San Mateo County. An experienced Encore Fellow provided expert knowledge that lead to significant cost savings from improved supply chain management and order processing.

The flagship Encore Fellows program in Silicon Valley is expanding in 2013, its fifth year in operation.

In order to meet the growing demand from both Fellow candidates and nonprofit Work Hosts, the program is open for applications on an ongoing basis.

In the first four years of operation, the Silicon Valley Encore Fellows have delivered nearly 50,000 hours of high impact work to local nonprofits.

Dozens of Encore Fellows have already been matched with community health centers and affiliated organizations, primarily in a pilot program in California sponsored by the California HealthCare Foundation. We are now working with groups around the U.S. to make more fellowships available to help the leaders of these organizations in their mission to transform the delivery of healthcare to the under-served in their communities.
