Engagement Services for Members
In 2015, Wider Circle co-founders Moshe and Darin set out to help Americans get the care they deserve. They were inspired by healthcare challenges they saw in their own family as they aged. Community was essential to their health along with many of the social determinants and its absence led to rapid decline. They knew there had to be a better way. The solution was one rigorously tested for the last seven years - create scalable neighborhood support groups that empowers members to take care of their health and tackle SBDOH. As a community health organization on wheels, Wider Circle acts as upstreamists to tackle these factors. They come to members neighborhood's to provide resources, social support and help them navigate their health through giving them a community to lean on. This ensures members get the most out of their local resources, benefits, and addresses SBDOH giving them the community they deserve to live a happier healthier life.
