Thank You Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield DE!

Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield Delaware
is partnering with YWCA Delaware on an exciting opportunity to expand the Health and Wellness Program at Home-Life Management Center, our transitional housing program for homeless families in Delaware. We are thrilled to announce that Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield Delaware has awarded us a $175,750 grant through its BluePrints for the Community grant program to make this expansion possible.

This grant will help us increase our reach to low-income and minority families, who disproportionately face healthcare disparities and poor health outcomes, with health and wellness education. With the expansion, YWCA will be able to better address one of the main reasons for this – poor health literacy. Because of Highmark’s generous support, we will create a new health and wellness curriculum, hire new staff with qualifications in health education, and expand the number of workshops we offer each year on health-related issues, among other activities.

YWCA Delaware sincerely thanks Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield Delaware, a leading example of corporate citizenry and responsibility in our community, for helping us expand and improve this program for families in need!
