The United Way of Metropolitan Nashville is a nonprofit that partners with local businesses to run workplace campaigns in order to raise money which is then invested back into the community through programs in health and human service organizations.  In addition, UWMN works with community partners, like F&CS, to develop and implement solutions to pressing community issues.  2-1-1's mission is to maintain a comprehensive list of updated resources and provide accurate referrals to services via telephone information and referral. This grant is a collaboration between 2-1-1 and Health Assist Tennessee (HAT) to improve access to healthcare for low and moderate-income people in eight Middle Tennessee counties in and around Nashville through targeted education.  Through a community-wide education campaign, the agencies will increase knowledge about 2-1-1 and HAT and link clients with appropriate health resources through out the region.  2-1-1 anticipates receiving 11,824 calls from individuals who need to be linked to affordable, quality care in the Middle Tennessee region.
