Finley Health Foundation Receives United Way of the Tri-States Grant
UnityPoint Health - Finley Health Foundation was a recipient of a $9,500 grant from the United Way of the Tri-States. The grant will support Dubuque Visiting Nurse Association’s Representative Payee program. The grant is a result of the United Way’s new and targeted initiatives program, developed to improve social services and programs in the Dubuque area. The VNA’s Representative Payee program provides financial management for Social Security and Social Security Income (SSI) beneficiaries who are unable to manage their Social Security or SSI payments because of a mental or developmental disability. This service is critical to each client’s quality of life. VNA payee coordinators work directly with the individuals to not only ensure they have access to basic necessities such as food, clothing, and shelter, but also enhance their access to health insurance, routine medical and dental care, medications, and community support. “On behalf of the United Way team and the Board of Directors, I want to thank you for leading an organization that is working together to meet the health, education and income needs of those in need in the communities served by our region,” said Danielle Peterson, President/CEO of United Way of the Tri-States.
