Acres Home Community Health Center (CHC)

Based at the Acres Homes Multi-Service Center on West Montgomery Road, the Acres Home Partnership was established in 1996 to provide community health services and education to area residents through an innovative community-driven health promotion program involving local leaders and mentors. The partnership’s home visit programs also provide a rewarding learning experience for students outside of the classroom. Acres Home CHC offers a class in elder health to our nursing students, which provides the opportunity to establish personal friendships with the residents where they live for three months. The students learn now to identify needs and find educational and community resources for the patients.
