Gabina is a single mother to Jorge. Having lost her job because of the COVID-19 pandemic, she struggles to make ends meet. She worries how she will feed her son and keep the lights on. Knowing she is her son's only support, Gabina lives in fear of getting sick and feels the true weight of the pandemic.
Thanks to the help of Sixteenth Street’s Patient Relief Fund, Gabina was able to back pay utility bills and purchase food and other necessities. Unable to get assistance elsewhere, the Patient Relief Fund was the only help Gabina and Jorge received.
Through Sixteenth Street's Patient Relief Fund, patients like Gabina can receive the emergency assistance they need during these challenging times. The fund provides financial help with basic needs such as food and diapers, help with utility or rent payments, and more. But above all, it provides hope.
You can make a difference for people like Gabina and Jorge (pictured below) who have nowhere else to turn.
All funds donated now through #GivingTuesday will go directly to Sixteenth Street patients through the Patient Relief Fund.
For in-kind donations, please call Cindy Cooper at 414-897-5161.
Two simple words really sum up Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers for us: Human Dignity. It’s one of Sixteenth Streets’ core values, and it’s something that is part of everything they do.
As an agency program partner with United Way, we get to see first-hand the services that are delivered to so many people in our communities, all with a great deal of dignity. They have an understanding of their capacity, and embrace their responsibility beyond their clinic walls. A perfect example is the work they do at three of our schools with the Milwaukee Community Schools Partnership.
At United Way, we believe that good health is more than simply visiting a doctor. It’s about housing, employment, literacy, and so much more. What we love about Sixteenth Street Community Health Center is that they take a deep dive into all of these issues in order for people to live the healthiest lives possible.
