Lifted by the Will to Help
DAP Health Insights – Monday, February 22, 2021, from David Brinkman, CEO
Widening Resources Assistance at DAP
More people face poverty daily because of this pandemic, and their own fear of seeking assistance threatens them and their communities. DAP Health is taking the stigma out of asking for help with our new Resources Navigator, a service for people who have been affected by COVID and who might not usually be seeking this kind of resource.
Help with food, utilities, and Internet service will help many affected households, and we will not stop there. Assistance with unemployment, legal and tax services are additional ways we are working to provide people in our community hope and some relief from the stress of living in this new normal.

Allied with Lift to Rise
Not everyone is accessing affordable housing and economic opportunities, and COVID is making the disparity even worse. That is why we have answered the call from our friends at Lift to Rise, pledging to continue this work in the Coachella Valley. The We Will Lift: Regional Pledge for Housing and Opportunity represents our shared vision and commitment to radically change the trajectory for our community by acting now.
DAP Health in the News
Our brand evolution represents our pledge to serve the Coachella Valley in the future, and it was built upon our learned experiences as we found solutions for improving health equity for this community. The Standard magazine covered our new logo’s inspiration, our commitment to ending HIV, and the timeline of DAP through the years, showing how our Valley and our mission have been expanding since 1984.
