United Way is working to address the pressing health care issues facing our communities. Health is a basic need impacting every aspect of a person's life. Children cannot concentrate in school and succeed if they are unwell, parents cannot focus on raising their family if they're constantly worried about how much a doctor or hospital visit will cost, and seniors without prescription assistance have to make decisions on which medicine they can afford and which ones they can do without.
United Way continues to support local health and human service programs such as Healthy Kids and promote FamilyWize. We look forward to convening a Community Solutions Team in health to further develop our goals in this important area. Based on the community aspiration process held two years ago with over 300 community members, our close relationships with a variety of health coalitions, and board members involved in the health arena, United Way has made the decision to first put our energy in education and income/financial stability where we have found there are the greatest need and our communities have asked for support.
