How United Way of Lake County is Working to Change the Odds for those in Need

Too many people in Lake County live in distress at being uninsured or under-insured. When it comes to accessing health services, a person’s zip code, standing in life, job and financial status serves as a harsh barrier to quality healthcare.

Meet our Health Impact Champion - Benjamin F. Edwards & Co.

“One in nine Lake County residents suffer from hunger and far too many live in distress at being uninsured or underinsured. Our goal is to help feed our neighbors in need and improve access to quality healthcare. This is why we've joined United Way of Lake County as a proud advocate. We are also a proud CHAMPION of their five-year health goal and have contributed $10,000 in support of this. We hope you will join us in choosing United Way of Lake County as your way to give back. Together we're working to change the odds.
