Our Goal

Increase the number of people who are healthy and avoid risky behavior by one-third.

Impact In Community 

In 2017, United Way agencies provided health and wellness programs to encourage healthy lifestyles. The Third City Community Clinic saw over 3,359 patients who were served with physician and dental visits as well as special events (ex: extraction clinic and Lincoln Dental Day). These patients had no other access to health or dental care. At the Central NE Council on Alcoholism and Addictions (CNCAA), 394 youth learned the skills to be drug and alcohol free. People who contacted CNCAA for assistance in dealing with addiction now have hope for a better future.  At the Crisis Center, 231 individuals learned about healthy relationships and violence prevention to improve their mental and physical well-being. 103 children in the foster care system had their voices heard by 36 CASA volunteers. Families saved over $34,000 on prescription drugs using the FamilyWize prescription savings card in 2017.
