Revitalist Partners with the Community Change Foundation to Improve the Lives of Underserved Communities

Revitalist is excited to be partnering with the Community Change Foundation, a non-profit 501c3 dedicated to providing access to mental health services for low-income and underserved communities. This partnership showcases our organization’s drive to change how we address and deliver mental health care to Americans critically in need of specialized services and solutions. 

Revitalist and Community Change Foundation have launched the UN*IT campaign with that in mind. This unique outreach program is designed to help two pillars of our national family find the support and mental healthcare they need. Veterans and first responders make inordinate sacrifices on behalf of all of us, yet they are also some of the most underserved individuals when it comes to mental health. UN*IT is meant to change that.  

Who is The Community Change Foundation?

The Community Change Foundation was founded to improve the lives of Americans by providing those in need with access to mental health services. As a Nonprofit Mental Health Organization, the Community Change Foundation promotes access to care, education, and holistic approaches to solving mental health crises in our communities. The organization strives to empower its partners by creating opportunities for change on both individual and community-wide levels.

Dedicated to Making a Difference

Community Change Foundation is in the business of improving lives, neighborhoods, and mental health across the nation. To accomplish this mission, we provide mental health services to those who need them most. Community Change Foundation actively seeks our individuals from underserved communities or who lack the financial means to pay for mental health services and provides them with funding for the treatments they desperately need. The mission of Community Change Foundation, 501c3, is to provide access to necessary services for those suffering from treatment-resistant conditions of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and psychological nature with special consideration to veterans, first responders, underserved populations, and those with limited financial resources.

Caring for Those Who Care for Our Communities

Our first responders face unimaginable stress every day, help us give back by supporting the UN*IT campaign.

What is the UN*IT Campaign?

The UN*IT campaign symbolizes the Revitalist’s and the Community Change Foundation’s dedication to connecting veterans and first responders needing specialized mental health solutions with qualified, compassionate medical providers.

As a community, Veterans and First Responders face unique mental health challenges. Both groups are significantly more likely to develop severe conditions like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression, and anxiety. Veterans are also 50% more likely than their civilian counterparts to have suicidal thoughts or attempt suicide. Revitalist and the Community Change Foundation want to change this. To do so, we partnered with each other to create the UN*IT campaign. The campaign will fund critically needed mental healthcare for these two communities who have sacrificed so much on behalf of our nation.
