With over one-in-four Texans uninsured, accessibility to healthcare is an ever-growing concern in our diverse urban and rural communities. Programs that provide prenatal care for expectant mothers, childhood immunizations and pediatric care, specialized care for the elderly, and overall assistance to help Texans lead healthier lives are needed to reduce the burden on our state’s emergency and critical care systems.
In addition, people in our communities deal daily with the impact of emotional and mental health issues, particularly in the wake of life-altering traumatic events. The toll of emotional crisis and mental illness on physical health and the ability to cope and function in a complex society has made serving those in need of tender compassion and medical assistance a priority of The Meadows Foundation.
