Community Partners Program
Community organizations are a lifeline to health and human services for many individuals.
In Allegheny County, 7% of our neighbors are uninsured. Countless others are underinsured and simply cannot afford growing copays or the retail cost of the homecare supplies they need.
Global Links’ Community Partners Program provides the medical materials, mobility aids, home healthcare equipment, and collaborative support Western Pennsylvania organizations need to better serve their clients and patients.
By removing barriers to healthcare and bridging the gaps in health insurance we can ensure that all of the region's citizens have access to the resources they need to live independently, safely, and with dignity.
“Literally having to keep clients on hold till we got what they needed. The donations to Off The Floor by Global Links have helped us to build a stockpile of these items to supplement our regular donations with and insure that we can address our clients’ needs without extending the waiting period for them.”
–Robert Meyers, ED, Off the Floor
“The populations we serve at OSN are the unsheltered homeless who are often reluctant to come inside and be seen. The supplies we receive from Global Links are very much appreciated and enable us to keep our cost down in stocking the shelter.”
– Judy K. Irvin, Supervisor, Operation Safety Net
“Of all the items that we receive from Global Links the one we rely on the most is the Similac Advance Formula. If we didn't get this from Global Links we would have to go out and purchase it for our clients.”
– Andrea Meloy, Genesis of Pittsburgh
