At United Way of Henry County & Martinsville, we strive to support agencies and programs that are positioning the community to be healthier and more resilient, such as:
- Promoting healthy eating and physical activity
- Encouraging positive lifestyle choices
- Offering access to quality health services
- Intergrating health into early childhood development
We also have found that good data analysis can challenge misconception. United Way is a hub for and provides oversight of a database called, Charity Tracker Plus, which helps human service agencies and benevolence programs tell a more accurate story of their delivery of services. To use this database, agencies become part of the Martinsville-Henry County Assistance Network, resulting in captured community data, stronger case management and a more formalized referral process in the community.
This network helps us to advance our healthy living strategic priorities.
