Making a Difference That Counts

The Wyandotte Health Foundation is on target and remains committed to fulfilling our mission:

To promote and improve the health of Wyandotte County citizens, particularly the indigent, through grants and collaborative efforts.

 

Our grant-making efforts have made a substantial difference in enhancing access to primary health care services for persons who are uninsured or underinsured. In addition, our funding has had a positive impact on access to specialty care and dental care for Wyandotte County residents. Beyond this, the Wyandotte Health Foundation has supported a number of health prevention, intervention and education initiatives.

From a broader perspective, we have been active in collaborative initiatives, among them:

  • Representation on the Steering Committee of the Mayor's Healthy Communities initiative to improve health through prevention and education.
  • Participation in the Kansas Grantmakers in Health that meets bimonthly to discuss cooperative opportunities regionally and statewide.
