Grantee Spotlight: Tuscarawas Clinic for the Working Uninsured
In 2008, Dr. Brenda Prince, an emergency room physician, saw patients using the emergency room for routine patient care and medication refills. She decided there should be a better way to help patients manage their health.
This led Dr. Prince and other healthcare professionals to start Tuscarawas Clinic for the Working Uninsured (TCWU). The non-profit organization provides free healthcare to employed, uninsured adults in Tuscarawas County who fall below 200% of the federal poverty level. The clinic also offers health education, prescription and financial assistance and access to social services.
In 2021, a grant from The Aultman Foundation (TAF) supported the clinic. That year, they served 120 active patients through 379 visits. The clinic continues to increase awareness about services and to help patients manage conditions, like diabetes and hypertension.
TAF selected TCWU to receive the 2022 Vicki Haines Legacy Award. The award highlights a grantee organization whose project enhanced the lives of others and displayed the excellence of service modeled by Vicki Haines, founder and former senior vice president of TAF. The Foundation was inspired by the clinic’s commitment to increase access to healthcare for Tuscarawas County residents.
When accepting the award in January 2023, Executive Director Pat Warther shared, “The Tuscarawas Clinic for the Working Uninsured is honored to have received The Vicki Haines Legacy Award. This award recognizes the clinic for its work and challenges us to continue with the same determination and passion as Vicki Haines.”
The Aultman Foundation bestows the recognition annually to celebrate Vicki’s valuable years of leadership and community service throughout Tuscarawas, Stark, Wayne, Holmes and Carroll Counties.
Here are three more of the outstanding programs The Aultman Foundation has supported:
Wellness – Viola Startzman Clinic supported a program that mobilized a psychiatric nurse practitioner in the community to care for homeless patients in places where they feel comfortable, such as shelters and meal settings.
Health Education – Stark County Black Nurses Association supported volunteer nurses visiting community locations to deliver education awareness, basic and preventative care for at risk and underserved populations.
Human Services – OHuddle expanded services during and after the school day to meet the growing need of research-based intervention, wrap-around services and mentorship for Wayne County youth living in poverty and with significant trauma.
