Fourfront Contributor

In 2019, Compass Health joined three of the largest community behavioral health providers in Washington State to form a new partnership called Fourfront Contributor, an advocacy and leadership coalition that utilizes our collective scale and expertise to improve the health of individuals, communities and the systems that serve them.

Fourfront Contributor allows us to continue meeting the needs of those we serve, while recognizing the power of collective action to advocate for statewide changes that will improve the sustainability of our programs and access to care.

In addition to our involvement, we collaborate closely with Sound, Comprehensive Healthcare, and Frontier Behavioral Health. With our collective size and service to 76,000 individuals statewide, the Fourfront Contributor footprint spans from the Pacific Ocean to the Inland Northwest.

Fourfront Contributor leaders envision multiple avenues to improve the health of individuals and communities. This includes engaging lawmakers to advocate for sound policies and necessary modernization of the community behavioral health system funding models; serving clients by developing practical, scalable, and evidence-based models of care; working with payers to advocate for adequate funding to support community behavioral health services; and supporting providers by advancing knowledge and best practices across service areas.

To keep up to date with all of our upcoming and previous advocacy efforts with Fourfront Contributor, you can visit the the Fourfront Contributor website or sign up for the Fourfront Contributor quarterly newsletter to get insights straight to your inbox: fourfrontcontributor.org/news.
