A Message from Wright County Health and Human Services:
Wright County Health and Human Services recently received grant funding from Wright County Area United Way for two different programs: The 60+ and Healthy Foot Care Clinic ($500) and The Special Needs Fund ($2,500).
The 60+ and Healthy Foot Care Clinic serves seniors and individuals with a health condition or physical hinderance who are unable to provide adequate foot care for themselves. The clinics are staffed with trained personnel and always have a Public health Nurse on-site. The 60+ and Healthy Foot Care Clinics are present in several cities throughout the county on a bi-monthly basis. The funds granted to us are used for tools and supplies to be able to provide the service to clients.
The Special Needs Fund helps fulfill the needs of individuals and families when they have exhausted all other resources (county, community, and volunteer organizations). The lack of such resources motivated the agency to develop this fund several years ago. The funds are used for clients who truly have no other place to turn. The various resources and programs we have do not fund all the needs faced by individuals and families, such as some medical needs, and the incidentals that people often need to meet their daily basic needs.
We want to thank Wright County Area United Way for this generous grant and their support of these programs which provide an improved quality of life to people to Wright County.
