Southington Health Outreach Project Funded for Fifth Consecutive Year
The Main Street Community Foundation awarded Wheeler an $80,000 grant to continue the Southington Health Outreach Project. Now in its fifth year, this project employs a three-tiered approach to serving individuals and families, including outreach and health education, system navigation assistance, and efforts to reduce barriers to care such as transportation, child care concerns and others.

Since the project’s inception in 2015, 9,392 residents were reached through outreach; 556 programs, outreach and transportation services were coordinated; and two editions of the Southington Behavioral Health Resource Directory were printed.
The Southington Health Outreach Project is coordinated by Wheeler Clinic and funded by the Bradley H. Barnes & Leila U. Barnes Memorial Trust at Main Street Community Foundation.
