Much of what influences health happens outside the doctor’s office.
If we want children to do well in school they need to be well fed and rested instead of worrying where their bed will be that night. If we want adults to have stable jobs they need access to healthcare and counseling support.
Yet, 1 in 6 children live in food insecure homes,
18% of our residents have unmet medical needs,
and more than 385 individuals are living on the street.
United Way and its partners meet these needs by focusing on a holistic picture of health in our community.
