When women unite, good things happen!
Since 2005, Sioux Empire United Way's WomenUnite Event has served as a way to connect women in our community to an emerging community need. Women unite around a cause and create change by creating awareness, encouraging excitement for giving, and inspiring volunteerism.
In 2017, women from across the Sioux Empire will again unite to take action. This year we will address mental health needs for area youth. 1 in 5 students in the U.S. show signs or symptoms of a mental health disorder and nearly 80% of children in need of mental health services won't receive them.
Obstacles to accessing and attending mental health care appointments can include: financial burdens, transportation, missing school, and missing work.
At this year's WomenUnite Event, Sioux Empire United Way will introduce PATH, which brings professional mental health counseling services to students at their school.
PATH joins a long line of good things happening across the Sioux Empire through community solutions that have been featured at WomenUnite. This includes:
- Girls on the Run
- BackPack Program
- Heart and Sole
- Challenge Day
- Ready to Start
- Better Together
- Delta Dental's Mobile Delta Program and Southeastern Dental Society of SD's Sioux Empire Smiles
Join us for this year's event to learn more about how you can unite with hundreds of other women from across the Sioux Empire to make good things happen.
