  • Chatham CARES Community Pharmacy, a member of the association of free clinics of NC and a non-profit organization which supplies chronic disease and health maintenance pharmaceuticals to Chatham residents who are uninsured or underinsured.
  • Adult Home Care Community Advisory Committee, an ombudsman program supported by the Division of Aging and Adults Services to monitor the quality of life and respect for residents’ rights in Chatham County assisted living facilities.
  • Chatham County United Chamber of Commerce
  • Siler City Merchants Association
  • Healthy Chatham Diabetes Task Force sponsored by the Chatham County Health Department.
  • Siler City Rotary
  • Chatham Transit Network, a provider of transportation for health and human service agencies clients and for the general public.
