Community Partner Spotlight
The Community Partner Spotlight shares good news about some of the great work being done in local communities. This month, we hope you enjoy learning about our friends at 3/31 Team US, Arrowhead Behavioral Health, Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities, and the United Way of Greater Toledo.
3/31 Team US promotes and raises awareness of chronic illness and mental health conditions in our communities through events, outreach programs and speaking engagements. 3/31 hopes to inspire, educate and motivate those battling with chronic or “invisible” illnesses to “live and not just survive” after diagnosis.
3/31 Team US offers social media groups for community members to connect with one another for support. In addition, monthly group meetings called “Let’s Start a Convo” are organized to gather those looking to share experiences and participate in fun activities with others diagnosed with chronic illness. The organization’s founder is a Buckeye Health Plan member who shared her personal story about a health scare with diabetes that turned into a triumph.

United Way of Greater Toledo fights for the education, health and financial stability of community members in Lucas, Wood and Ottawa counties. The organization’s 2-1-1 resource program provides residents with access to local resources and programs to thrive.
Access to resources is available to residents 24/7, 365 days a year. 2-1-1 Community Resource Advisors answer about 250 calls and texts each day. These calls result in referrals for food, shelter/housing, clothing and utility assistance. Callers are given as many referrals as needed to address and remove social barriers that can undermine their health and well-being.
