United Way of Northern Arizona Launches COVID-19 Fund

We at the United Way of Northern Arizona (UWNA) hope that this message finds you well during these turbulent times. 

We have launched the UWNA COVID-19 Fund, an emergency campaign to help those organizations providing basic needs to our friends and neighbors as we cope with the fallout from the coronavirus.

Although there currently is a limited amount of confirmed cases in our region, the impact of this virus is already being felt in our communities. Schools have closed. Many businesses have temporarily shut their doors or are operating on a limited basis. Our social safety nets are being tested.

When we face emergencies like this, it is up to us to ‘Live United’ and support those who need us most.

Community Health Resolutions for a New Decade

Community Health Resolutions for a New Decade

Have you noticed that most New Year’s resolutions are about developing healthier lifestyles? Most people want to eat better, exercise more, and find time for themselves. These are all worthy pursuits. But a few weeks into our new decade, for many, these resolutions will start to fade.

At the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, we believe that good health is significantly determined by forces outside of ourselves—our health is greatly influenced by the places where we live, learn, work, and play. Having opportunities to get a good education and stable employment is foundational to our well being. Access to affordable housing and healthy foods, and feeling safe in our neighborhoods all create opportunities to help us live our healthiest lives.

This made me wonder: why not adopt community-wide New Year resolutions? Because fostering healthier communities sets individuals up for success!
Here’s a look back at some of what research has taught us over the last few years on what works to create healthier, more equitable communities. Let’s set a collective resolution to do what works so that the next decade and the next generation, can be the healthiest possible.
