Equitas Health – The Uniters

The Uniters is a video series that features United Way community partners

United Way fights for the education, health and financial stability of every person in Lucas, Wood and Ottawa counties.

“If we didn’t have Mpowerment, there would not be an outlet for LGBT youth”

To kick off the year, I visited United Way community partner Equitas Health!

During the time I spent with Matthew Rodnicki, I learned about the Mpowerment program and more specifically about how they work to empower LGBT youth in our community and provide them with safe spaces that typically can be difficult for them to find. Check out this video, to learn about our partnership and this great community organization!

The Uniters is a video series that highlights United Way’s community partners and their work in the community. All partners who are featured have applied for United Way funding during the most recent community grant process and were selected with the help of 28 community reviewers who utilized a data-driven decision-making model.
