Health

 

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. 

United Way and its partners meet these needs by focusing on a holistic picture of health in our community.
