As the largest network of community healthcare centers in Washington, D.C., Unity Health Care provides whole-person care and wellness to over 106,000 patients annually, regardless of the ability to pay. This event is crucial to raising much needed funds to benefit Unity Health Care’s women’s health services, which includes primary and preventive care, family planning services, health education, and behavioral health counseling for over 50,000 women in DC communities every year.
During the program, you will have an opportunity to give a gift, in support of Unity Health Care's women's health services. Your support helps to provide primary and preventive care, family planning services, health education, and behavioral health counseling to the 50,000 women receiving care at Unity.
Every dollar counts. 54% of Unity's patients are women. Of those patients, 58% are making at or below the poverty line of $24,000 or less per year, and 6% are uninsured.
No gift is too big or too small:
$50 pays for a prenatal blood test to ensure that mom can deliver a happy, healthy baby
$200 helps pay for the Zika virus test on pregnant women who traveled to areas of local active Zika virus transmission, which can cause catastrophic birth defects, as well as loss of pregnancy
$1,000 can help pay for Makena injections that prevents preterm labor in at-risk women
Thank you so much, in advance, for helping us to provide care to our patients who desperately need it.
