United Way of West Florida fights for the health of every person in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. 

 

To improve health outcomes in our community, we work to leverage resources by strategically investing in quality programs through our Community Investment Process; building and participating in partnerships and coalitions; and advocating for policies that help people and families in our community. 
 

Partner Agencies that receive Community Investment grant funding for health programs are required to submit regular reports identifying how funds are used to support programmatic efforts to improve health outcomes, such as:

 

  • % of children/adults served who eat healthier, increase their physical activity, and/or move towards a healthy weight
  • % of individuals who acquire prescriptions, mental, behavioral, dental, and general health services
  • % of individuals who acquire prescriptions, mental, behavioral, dental, and general health services
  • % of individuals who maintain or improve their emotional, mental, and/or social health
