Eden Hall Foundation is a leading backer of Race for the Cure, an annual Mother’s Day marathon that raises funds for the Mammogram Voucher Program. These vouchers cover the cost of mammograms and follow-up diagnostic services for underinsured and uninsured women throughout western Pennsylvania. More than 60 FDA-accredited mammography facilities participate in the reimbursement program created by the National Council of Jewish Women.

ONE STEP AT A TIME

Although Family Footsteps is a current project of Jameson Health Systems of New Castle, the program had its roots in a similar outreach from neighboring Butler Memorial Hospital Foundation. In Family Footsteps, first-time parents — and those who are single or teens — receive care and instruction from hospital representatives who make home visitations.

AN APPLE A DAY

Nutritional health is important to everyone. And, the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank supplies more than 100,000 individuals each month with wholesome and inviting foods. Eden Hall Foundation supported the construction of the Food Bank’s new warehouse in Duquesne, where fresh and processed foods are received, sorted and distributed.

ON THE ROAD AGAIN

Getting to and from doctors’ appointments can be an insurmountable challenge for many, particularly pregnant women. To help improve the health of women and their babies, the Travelers Aid Society developed Mobile Moms, an effort that provides vouchers for public transportation to pre- and post-natal health care. More than ten major hospitals in the region participate in this unusual service, which allows 2,000-plus women to receive the health care they and their babies need.
