Because of You
Erlinda first visited Mission of Mercy's health care facility, a UWCB partner program, in 2016 in need of treatment. She had no insurance at the time and nowhere else to go to get the help she needed. Over the course of two years, she received regular care that helped her get and remain healthy.
"I am forever grateful and appreciative of the medical care that I have received from doctors, nurses, staff and volunteers. I have been treated with the utmost respect, dignity and caring people throughout my medical care."
Erlinda is now a past patient with her own health insurance and no longer needs the services provided by Mission of Mercy. She brought her story full circle and donates to the non-profit and plans to volunteer there. Her story is an example of what happens when you give to United Way of the Coastal Bend and provide a hand-up to your friends and neighbors.
