Our session approved reaching out to Blue Cross Blue Shield Foundation for a major grant which would pair us with several local partners to be a part of a community wide, health initiative. Some examples of what other grant recipients have done are linked here.
Milner would use some of the energy and connections already available through Santuario, Life Together Raleigh, and Haven House along with our campus to host current and future diabetes support groups. We would likely partner with UNC for providing various medical services and possibly reach out to a mobile health clinic that could park out front. Furthermore, we have a separate grant that we are awaiting news from that would allow us to create a park out front to welcome the community and provide for light exercise and physical health in our community.
We should know more about the large grant by the end of March.
