As a responsible member of our community, exerting a positive influence isn't simply about fulfilling a duty—it is our passion and our mission. Through active involvement in Worcester and beyond, UMass Memorial is shaping a better tomorrow. Every year, we help and host numerous programs and services to benefit the general public and community agencies through collaborative efforts. Here's what we're proud to have accomplished.
Helping the Less Fortunate
We provide aid to impoverished, uninsured and underinsured children and adults who are predominantly ethnic and linguistic minorities with our Care Mobile Program. In addition, dental services are provided at community health centers that make comprehensive dental care available to low-income populations. At the Edward M. Kennedy Community Health Center, we subsidize the cost of a cardiologist to provide specialty care, and offer a full-time outreach liaison who works closely with the low-income residential neighborhood of Bell Hill. We are also proud to contribute to the cost of emergency transportation, emergency communication, facilities or ambulance services at community events.
UMass Memorial offers a wide range of individual and family literacy programs in collaboration with the Worcester Public Schools, community-based organizations, English as a Second Language Programs and several neighborhood groups. These programs serve economically disadvantaged families and youth that are most at risk of dropping out of school.
Programs for Youth
YouthNet, an organization comprised of eight youth-driven agencies in Worcester, works closely with the business sector, school officials and community organizations to provide healthy alternatives for economically disadvantaged inner city youth. By providing after-school activities and supervised safe places where youth can spend quality time, YouthNet aims to prevent low-income youth from dropping out of school and getting involved with drugs, gangs and violence. A total of 800 youth and adolescents, ages 11-15, spend their afternoons and/or evenings during the summer performing community service and participating in recreational and educational activities throughout different facilities across the city.
Care in Action: Caribbean and Haiti Relief Efforts
When a 2010 earthquake shook Haiti and the surrounding Caribbean islands—claiming an estimated 230,000 lives—UMass Memorial stepped in to provide relief. We deployed a team of medical experts from our Disaster Medical Assistance Team to provide health care and basic medical necessities to the devastated island nation. By providing services such as wound care, pain relief and particularly critical care to the very young who had been injured, sometimes severely, by the natural disaster, we made a difference in that important time. As a member of the worldwide community, we answered the call to duty and provided care when it was needed the most.
