HEALTH

United Way seeks to improve health care accessibility for individuals of all ages and to advance health and wellness in the community. United Way of Central Virginia is one of the members of the Partnership for Healthy Communities, which is conducting the 2018 community health needs assessment.

The goal is to address barriers that keep Central Virginians from being healthy: generational poverty, unfamiliarity with available health services and the lack of personal support structures.

The assessment will serve as a lighthouse to point leaders in the same direction to make the most efficient and focused efforts to address long-standing needs.

Kevin's Story

Kevin suffered for years with Diabetes. Unfortunately, a few years ago, he lost his job and found himself without insurance. He then had to use the services of United Way and get help from the Free Clinic of Central Virginia

“I’ve donated to the United Way for years, every job I ever had, and I never knew they funded the Free Clinic until we started coming here. Thank God for the United Way.”
