HEALTH

Our focus:  Improve and maintain the health of those in our community.

The word health has many different meanings. At United Way, we believe a comprehensive approach to health is needed to help people begin and sustain healthy lives. A healthy community is one that supports individual health, safety and development; one where individuals can live free of violence and abuse; one where opportunities for physical activity and a nutritious diet are accessible to all; one where people of all ages have health care services for preventative, mental health, and dental care to support overall well-being.

That’s why United Way of Coastal Carolina is working to improve health in our community by mobilizing people and organizations who have the expertise and resources to help people live healthy lives.

United Way partner agencies are there to help by:

  • Supporting seniors with prescription assistance

  • Assisting members of our community who are without health insurance receive medical care

  • Providing support and services that help chemically dependent adults recover
