We’ve thrilled to let you know that Families as Allies is receiving an important gift from our friends at UnitedHealthcare and UnitedHealthcare EmpoweringHealth. UnitedHealthcare awarded us $90,000 Empowering Health grant to make a difference in the lives of Mississippians. We’ll use the funds to implement a strong parent-to-parent peer support pilot program for parents with children in the juvenile court system, including resources to help their children, and court navigation assistance when system barriers are encountered.
UnitedHealthcare is awarding $1 million in Empowering Health grants to six Mississippi community-based organizations to expand access to care and address the social determinants of health for uninsured individuals and underserved communities.
Thank you, UnitedHealthcare, for selecting us to be one of those organizations!
Families, if your child is involved in the youth court system and you would like to help us plan how to set up this grant in the way that is most helpful to families, please contact Joy Hogge at 601-355-0915 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
