Health-08

Loudoun County has been hit, as has the country, with the effects of tough economic times. Many families lack health care insurance or the funds to pay for services. This growing demand creates a necessity at County health facilities for innovative equipment and procedures to continue improving services for its residents. Such improvements can mean better and more locally accessible healthcare for Loudoun County residents.

100WomenStrong recommends grants to applicants, allowing them to better accomplish, or increase their capacity to fulfill their mission. Each of these grants increases the quality of life for the residents of Loudoun County.
