BENEFITING: PADS LAKE COUNTY INC
PADS Lake County
Homeless women are particularly vulnerable and tend to suffer in silence from a variety of chronic health issues. At PADS Lake County, we see the challenges and barriers women experiencing homelessness face as their health concerns often become secondary to finding employment and stable housing. Female clients are often overdue for crucial reproductive health exams or simply haven't been to a physician in years and are now battling symptoms of serious illness without the necessary medical intervention they need. Additionally, due to high demand, community based health centers often have wait times in excess of 6 months for an appointment. PADS is working hard to help combat these barriers and assure our female clients receive the essential medical services in a timely manner. However, as a non-profit we need your help! Would you join our campaign to help PADS connect women to vital care?
