Connecting Services in Rural Communities
Published by Unite Us
It should come as no surprise that rural communities face unique health and social challenges—from the extra distance to hospitals and clinics to a lack of sustainable funding for healthcare and social programs and higher overall rates of chronic conditions.
But small towns, farming communities, and other rural areas are places where neighbors know each other well and have a strong tradition of pitching in with help and support for those in need. Local organizations like food banks, churches, shelters, and a variety of third places—where people spend time between home and work—bring more services to the table while strengthening connection and community.
