FOR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
According to the CDC, 90% of our country’s $3.8 trillion annual healthcare costs are associated with individuals with chronic diseases and mental health conditions, which are more likely to affect people from low-income situations.
WellSpan’s Community Health Needs Assessment also found that economic hardship among York County residents has been increasing over the past several years, as evidenced by the growing demand for free school lunches and social services.
HOW WE WILL HELP
The collective resources of the Roth’s Church Road Community Partnership will meet all the needs of local residents.
The YMCA will bring its free or low-cost chronic disease prevention and management programs for conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease and cancer to the facility, which will collaborate with healthcare providers who are planning to occupy space in the facility.
The YMCA and New Hope Ministries, another nonprofit partner in the project, will work together to give immigrants and long-time residents alike case management services and direct assistance, such as referrals and food distributions.
