PEOPLE WHO MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOUNDATION AT A GLANCE

A Bit of Background

Since our founding in 2011, we have been determined to make an impact in the community. The core of our efforts is to provide financial assistance to health uninsured population, making easy access to quality care including preventive services  and educating them the way for a wellness life.  We hope to contribute for lower the percentage of  uninsured individuals educating them to better choose an affordable healthcare insurance  plan.

 

ACTIVITIES

Making A Difference

FUNDING TO HELP INDIVIDUALS WHO CAN NOT AFFORD MEDICAL CARE

Support for recovering health

With this initiative, our goal is to promote great opportunities for those with chronic illness to recover their health and to reintegrate themselves to the work force contributing to local and national development.

COMMUNITY WORKSHOP

The Way For Wellness

Our organization uses strategies for dealing wellness challenges. Educating the community to achieve a healthy life  is something that we take very seriously, and our team is often working to make a positive impact. The Workshops'  topics are medical, healthcare and wellness.  We also offer subjects related to the community interest as Public Law and  General Information.

 

ADDITIONAL PROJECTS

Changing Lives

NEGOTIATE WITH CLINICS & HOSPITALS

Reinforcing our Commitment

With access to the right person at the healthcare provider's Financial Management, we get the opportunity to negotiate a medical procedure's high cost and payment plan as well. 
Even though not always the provider is able to give us a financial benefit, during all those years we have successfully negotiated some medical rates.

HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL PARTNERSHIP 

Free Dentist Care Day

Health uninsured and low income outreach population in our community is something that we take very seriously. Health Professionals with the same vision,  partner with us and many people receive the benefit of donated health service.

MISSION FIELD - DOMESTIC AND OVERSEAS

We send basic resources to the forgotten population

At PEOPLE WHO MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOUNDATION, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing this world issue. We care about the unfortunate population sending them supplies as food, clothing, basic personal necessities and new toys donation.  Through out our community cooperation and empowerment we believe we are making a difference in those people's lives. We  invite you to learn more and lend your support.

COMMUNITY REALITY

THE FOLLOWING REAL NUMBERS ARE ONE OF THE  REASONS WE DO WHAT WE DO FOR THE COMMUNITY

  • Adults in Orange County age 18-44 (72.9%) are less likely to have insurance coverage than those age 45-64 (83%) and those 65 and older (94.7%)

  •  Adults with education less than high school (75.9%) are also less likely to have insurance than those with high school education (85.6%)

  •  Adults with incomes less than $25k (65.3%) are also less likely to have insurance compared to those with incomes $25k-$49k (82.7%) or $50k and over (96.3%)

(By Florida Health Orange County – 2019 Community Health Assessment)


Because of lack of health insurance it leads the individual to end up in a stage of a chronic disease that becomes an emergency care which generates higher costs. Many times the patient cannot afford a medical treatment, as a follow up,  and the results can be a premature death.


HOW WE IMPACT THE COMMUNITY

Providing financial assistance to health uninsured population helps reducing factors affecting health outcomes as:

  • ​inadequate access to quality care including preventive services

  • expensive medical bills due to no diagnose or untreated chronic condition

  • more emergency room visits, raising up unpaid hospital bills

OUR DATA REPORT


2019 

  • Individual Encounters (visits) .........481

  • Individuals Visits (returned) .............217

  • Volunteers Hours ...................................800

  • Return on Investment ...........63 cents of every dollar

(means that every donated dollar,  63% go to provide direct patient assistance)

 

TESTIMONIALS

 

HELAINE S.

My name is Helaine. I am 32. After a motorcycle accident, on my early twenties, I became handicap. In 2019 I was promoting a campaign to raise money to buy a new wheelchair. My cousin who lives in Orlando, FL, heard about the PWMD Foundation and told them my story. The foundation contacted me.  I went throughout an application process and I got qualified and approved for a financial aid.  With their help I was able to buy this customized wheelchair. 
I recommend, with no doubt, the services and support of this organization.  2019
