On February 27, 2017, WellCare Health Plans, Inc. on behalf of its subsidiary Harmony Health Plan, Inc., disbursed $18,000 in the form of 13 micro-grants to community-based organizations. These micro-grants will support nonprofit organizations that provide crucial social services around transportation, behavioral health services, and youth programming.
For a small, new community-based organization, micro-grants increase capacity for existing programs and create possibilities for new ideas and ventures. “Thanks to Harmony’s support, River City Community Development Center will now be able to provide the youth of West Humboldt Park with holistic after-school support to help set them on the path for a healthy and successful future,” said Elizabeth Galik, executive director at River City. “We are so grateful for Harmony’s investment in the incredible youth of our community and, by extension, the future of our city.”
