How does your gift to United Way support physical and mental health?
Health impacts every aspect of our lives. Good health allows children to learn better and helps adults live more independent, productive lives. By funding programs at our agency partners and collaborating with various community organizations, we create opportunities for people to achieve their optimal health and independence. Watch this video from LuAnn Oatman, Executive Director of Berks Encore, as she shares how United Way investments help seniors live fuller, more independent lives through Meals on Wheels.
When you give to United Way, this is your impact in the area of Health:
YOUR GIFT HELPS KIDS OVERCOME OBSTACLES
When you give to United Way, you help children with special needs overcome obstacles by giving them access to therapy programs, evaluations and other medical services.
YOUR GIFT HELPS PEOPLE RECOVER AT HOME
When people need help recovering from illness or injury, but they can’t afford the costs, your gift provides skilled nursing and social services, along with physical, speech, and occupational therapies.
YOUR GIFT IMPROVES ACCESS TO MENTAL HEALTH CARE
Mental health is just as important as physical health, but many find themselves unable to pay the full cost of treatment. When you give to United Way, you make mental health care services more affordable.
Through our unique Community Wide Care approach, your gift helps children succeed in school, empowers families to become financially stable, promotes healthy lifestyles and helps those most in need. Everything we do is focused on Education, Health, Financial Stability and Safety Net Services. Together, we LIVE UNITED.
