Health

United Way is working for a healthier community.

Whether it is a neighbor without health insurance, a victim of abuse, or someone struggling with mental illness or an addiction, United Way partners are working to improve the health of the community. Healthy and safe children are more successful in school. Healthy adults are more productive employees. And healthy elders are able to respectively age in their own homes.

Harvey County United Way is helping improve health of residents by:

  • Responding, investigating and preventing abuse/neglect of children and families.
  • Providing access to Health Care and Chronic Disease Reduction
  • Supporting elders aging in place with activity centers and meals delivered to the homebound.
  • Securing medical equipment for the disabled and respite care for caregivers.

2016-2017 Funded Programs – 58% of Community Investment Funding*:

*NOTE: 25% of total funding is used for abuse, neglect and crime related services and 15% of total funding supports aging in place.
