Many thanks to our generous grantors who enable us to provide services in our area!
- The United Way of Cumberland County is a truly amazing supporter of Better Health. Their organization supports numerous local nonprofits and programs like Dolly Parton's Imagination Library! http://www.unitedway-cc.org/. Their support provides operational support to our core programs, meaning that YOUR donations can go directly to client aid like prescriptions and dental care!

Better Health was awarded $7,000 to assist hurricane victims through direct aid and emergency diabetes kits.
