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.
In the Oshkosh area, there is a growing need to support positive Mental Health. One of United Way’s goals is to increase the number of Oshkosh area residents who participate in quality physical and mental health practices. It is so important for the individual, their families and the entire community that people have the support and resources they need for assistance and recovery.
Provide funding to increase the number of youth and adults who:
- Are healthy and safe
- Are able to live independently and with dignity
- Have access to high quality and affordable mental, behavioral, dental and general health care services
- Have access to prevention education and avoid risky behaviors
- Have a network of support
