Imagine the possibilities
Your gift supports a healthy and socially-connected community
Great Rivers United Way funds and facilitates a variety of programs that support physical and mental health.
In 2019, 16,979 individuals received access to health care and supports. Nearly 200 partner program staff received training funded by Great Rivers United Way, which enabled them to better serve those individuals. Approximately 60% of those served by nutrition programs reported eating healthier, increasing exercise, and moving toward a healthy weight.
Internally, our Great Rivers HUB program helped all 21 of its expecting clients deliver their babies at healthy birth weights, and 20 of them (95%) carried beyond 37 weeks. Better Together, a behavioral health program we house, has trained thousands of adults, with and without prior experience, in Mental Health First Aid, ACEs/Trauma Informed Care, and Mental Health Literacy.
Your gift makes a difference
In addition to physical and mental health services, your gift to Great Rivers United Way stabilizes household economic situations and supports programs that give our youngest community members equal opportunities to grow up strong.
