People often need more than medical care to become healthy. Social
determinants of health, such as housing, employment, working conditions,
disability benefits and personal safety, can have a profound impact on a
person's ability to live a healthy and fulfilled life, more so if that person is already living in poverty.
COMING SOON: To address these needs, FamilyCare is working with Legal
Aid of West Virginia to create a new partnership, placing an attorney
at several FamilyCare sites. There will be no
charge to low-income patients - to help with some of the legal problems
that can stand in the way of good health.
