Domestic Violence Drive

It’s Time for our annual October Domestic Violence Drive

With lockdowns and unemployment, many are restrained to home where there may already be violence, but now there is no relief by being able to leave.  The stress of the pandemic and economic recession has added to the anger and fear driving up incidences of violence both in the home and on the streets.  Supporting shelters, providing mental health support, and reaching out to those in danger is essential.

HealthLink Initiative is dedicated to relieving the strain of health and wellness costs for victims of abuse. One in every four women and one in every nine men will experience domestic violence in their lifetime. The annual cost of domestic violence exceeds $8.8 billion each year, of which $5.8 billion is for health-related costs. This financial burden in addition to the emotional cost can be a limiting factor in making a change to a new and safer life.

HLI has held this annual event since 2014 and will continue to support this need to save lives.

Geri’s Kitchen Table

HealthLink Initiative launches “Geri’s Kitchen Table” initiative

Supporting the importance of a good meal and a helping hand.

Named after my grandmother who always made sure everyone got a hug, a smile, and plenty to eat with a fresh cooked meal ready when we visited.  She took care of us and in her honor, we aim to help take care of others.

HealthLink Initiative launched a new program to support seniors during the Covid-19 pandemic.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says seniors and those with preexisting conditions are high risk and should stay at home.  While most everyone is experiencing a financial crisis at this time, these individuals are experiencing an even greater level of fear in getting out to get food and essentials to live.  HLI is committed to helping by easing this burden through supplemental efforts.

A few of the strategies we are employing are:

  • Providing Gift cards for groceries and essentials
  • Supporting local food pantries
  • Co-paying for medical equipment like wheelchairs, grab bars, shower stools, and more
  • Contributions to Amazon wish accounts

The Gramps Need Your Help

HealthLink Initiative asks for your support in giving seniors on restrictive income the option for alternative care.  While most insurance policies cover integrative care, Medicare covers very little.  As seniors need this the most, it doesn’t really make sense.

Alternative, complimentary, or functional medicine provides whole body care that can help with aches and pains that come as we grow older.  Conventional medicine uses palliative care and can dispense pharmaceutical drugs, but that shouldn’t be the only option.

As number 7 of the top ten most important public health problems today according to the CDC is “nutrition, physical activity and obesity“, whole body care is clearly needed.  As number 3 is  “healthcare-associated infections“, and number 8 is “prescription drub overdose“, then it makes even more sense for non-conventional medical options.

Most seniors are on a very limited budget and need choices in treatment.  HealthLink Initiative is committed to helping them get that care.

HLI charity wants to provide aids and care to in-need seniors.   Please donate today to help us do that.  Many grandmas and grandpas will be grateful.
