The Good Neighbor Fund… help someone in need and be one of this community’s Good Neighbors!
WCA Foundation is connecting with the generous nature of this community to help patients at UPMC Chautauqua with economic and medical hardships. The Good Neighbor Fund has been created to assist those with determined hardships who need transportation, clothing or medicine to get them home and to their next doctor’s appointment.
The need is not unique to our hospital or community, but our strong response will be unique when we assist our most vulnerable neighbors. Imagine being told you are ready to be discharged but you came into the hospital as an emergency patient and have no clothes with you, no family to help you and no way or means to purchase clothing. The Good Neighbor Fund will be able to help meet your needs.
The Fund will also be able to give transportation vouchers to patients determined to have economic hardships to facilitate their discharge to their home. One-time requests for un-insured patients will be reviewed and honored enabling discharge from the hospital. The patient will have enough medication to last until they visit their primary care physician ‑ thanks to the Good Neighbor Fund.
The thread that ties all these hardship cases together is spun with community members who step forward as good neighbors with their heartfelt donations to support those in need. Make the Good Neighbor Fund your go-to place to donate when you want to honor or memorialize people in your life. Your gift will be magnified by the good works it will do.
