While some levy-supported programs specifically address the special needs of the under-served, the chronically ill, the disabled and high-risk populations, the majority of the programs are for use by the entire community.
For instance, if you are one of the callers who receives help from the EvergreenHealthline, or has utilized services from our geriatric care clinic, our senior services or our grief and bereavement program, you have benefited directly from levy-supported services.
Here is a directory of our levy-funded programs:
The Community Healthcare Access Team works in partnership with many community organizations to assist low-income and uninsured community residents who face barriers in accessing affordable health and social services. Needs are assessed by social workers and clients are connected to financial, social and primary or specialty health resources in the community.
Through a unique partnership, Lake Washington School District and EvergreenHealth established a program to place EvergreenHealth social workers in local high schools to assess students with high-risk behavioral and mental health conditions, and assist them in seeking affordable treatment that doesn’t require them to leave school for an extended period.
