Welcome to Project Access Northwest

Partnering to improve health care access in our region

Concerned about health care in our community? We invite you to become part of the solution — helping our uninsured and underinsured neighbors receive the specialty medical and dental care they need. In our two core programs, we match prescreened patients with volunteer specialty providers to deliver life-changing care, and pay health insurance premiums for those unable to afford coverage on their own.
