HEALTH

Our Goal

That families have equitable access to the opportunities and resources that supports their physical, mental and social well-being, so all children grow-up healthy to succeed in school and life. 

Our Strategy

As part of our vision of a community where all children have a strong foundation for success in school and life our approach includes health, education, and financial stability. To achieve this goal we partner with and support organizations in our community that improve the physical, mental and social health of local families.

Since 2011, Fox Valley United Way has been committed to connecting area residents to prescription savings resources through our partnership with FamilyWize. The FamilyWize Prescription Savings Card offers significant discounts on medications. In addition, FamilyWize is now offering free customer support to help coordinate prescription medication delivery from participating pharmacies. The free FamilyWize Prescription Savings Card immediately lowers the cost of prescription medications by an average of 45% and is accepted at most pharmacies.

 

Fox Valley United Way’s Early Education Initiative SPARK offers free developmental screenings for any family that needs one. These screenings helps identify potential developmental delays in children as early as possible. For any family that needs help with early childhood development they can fill out our Gateway to Early Childhood Programs intake form to be connected with local resources and ensure all children have what they need to be healthy and succeed in school and life.
