UNC Receives Grant from Scranton Area Foundation to Support Community Health Department

DSCN0518United Neighborhood Centers of Northeastern Pennsylvania (UNC) recently received a $20,000 grant from the Scranton Area Foundation to support the agency’s new Community Health Department.  The Community Health Department was launched in March 2014 to act as a bridge between health care entities and the vulnerable populations UNC has served for decades.  Specifically, the program provides individualized care coordination services, as well as broader awareness/educational programming, generalized resource and referral assistance, specialty clinics, and screenings targeted to groups of at-risk individuals.
