Access to Care

We See a Healthier Community.

United Way funds twelve programs that serve some of our community’s most vulnerable people: those experiencing homelessness, uninsured and underinsured seasonal and migrant farm worker families, pregnant women, and low-income individuals with Alzheimer’s and Epilepsy.

By funding programs that enroll residents in health care programs, promote health and wellness, and provide primary, oral, prenatal, and mental health care, we are strengthening the overall health of our community.

We’re making an impact:

  • 8,451 individuals accessed health care services and support from our funded partners last year.
  • 92% of these individuals experienced improved health outcomes.

Alzheimer’s Community Care provides dementia specific education and information, referrals to community-based services, linkage to respite and support groups, transportation services, and family guidance with care plans.

Families First of Palm Beach County provides permanent housing with support services to homeless families with disabilities. Families First of Palm Beach County also links high-risk pregnant women to needed pre- and postnatal care as well as monitoring and follow-up services.

The Volen Center enhances the well-being of South Florida seniors by educating and advocating on their behalf, and by providing door-to-door transportation to seniors and adults with disabilities.
