Annual Meeting

Dogwood Health Trust hosted its first virtual annual meeting on October 28, 2020. During this meeting, we shared what Dogwood has been doing over the past year and our four strategic priorities for the future: Housing, Education, Jobs, and Health & Wellness. We also asked community members for their ideas and suggestions. If you missed the meeting, you can watch the video and learn what we heard.

We are committed to

Diversity, Equity
and Inclusion.

Our commitment is to foster an environment that recognizes and respects all people in this region, their values, and each community’s unique qualities and attributes. At Dogwood Health Trust, we believe that embracing diversity, equity, and inclusion as an organization is the absolute best and most intentional way to live into our purpose, values and guiding principles. This supports our strategy, partnerships and collaboration to achieve the greatest impact across Western North Carolina.


Pisgah Legal Services

Since 1978, Pisgah Legal Services has been providing legal assistance and advocacy to help low-income people in Western North Carolina meet their basic needs and improve their lives. In 2020, a grant from Dogwood Health Trust helped PLS reach out to many who had lost health insurance due to lost employment, allowing those without coverage to take advantage of a small window of opportunity to enroll in coverage.
