The Joint Committee is a leading example of a successful non-profit 501(c) 3 organization. The Joint Committee remains an integral part of the health insurance access sector and holds a leadership role in Massachusetts. When the groundbreaking Massachusetts’ health reform law of 2006, known as Chapter 58, was passed and implemented into law, the Joint Committee was a key supporter. Subsequently, this legislation was used as a basis for the federal Affordable Care Act. Currently, The Joint Committee holds an essential and fundamental status as a Massachusetts Health Connector Navigator Organization.

The Executive Director will serve as the leader and chief administrator promoting and advancing wellness practices within Everett’s diverse community, by adhering to and enhancing the mission of the Joint Committee. Through the efforts of the Joint Committee, over the course of the twenty-six years, Everett and the surrounding communities of all backgrounds have experienced the rewards of working together to build new bridges to enhance community health for all residents. This has been accomplished by finding new ways to create affordable access to health care, health care awareness and education; and access to healthy food, exercise, and ways to address racial discrimination, and health disparities and to create collaborative civic projects to improve air and water quality.
