The health of individuals is a strong indicator of the health of a community. Oshkosh Area United Way partners with agencies and initiatives to provide help to those without health insurance, seniors in need of care, survivors of abuse, people with disabilities, individuals living with mental illness and anyone who desires a fit and active lifestyle.
