East Harris County Tornado Response Close Alert

With your help, United Way supports our neighbors with primary health care, specialty care services, like dental care and occupational therapy, as well as individual and family counseling and substance use recovery.

When our neighbors cannot afford or access quality health care, they often forgo, delay, or skip critical preventative care or mental health/substance use treatment and end up in the emergency room for non-emergency care. This results in employees missing work or going to work sick. It reduces workplace productivity and increases health disparities in our community.

Supporting our neighbors’ health care needs and helping them gain greater financial stability means they can achieve better health, miss less work and school, and won’t need emergency services as often. It also means improved workplace productivity, less health care spending, and better health for our entire community.
