A Vital Need for Vibrant Health

In place of hosting our annual gala, we invite you to join us in our campaign – “A Vital Need for Vibrant Health,”to raise critical funds toward our mission. With your support, we can ensure equitable health care for those who need it most.

For 30 years, Vibrant Health has provided high quality and accessible medical, dental, behavioral health and women’s health care, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, income, insurance coverage, and many other socio-economic obstacles patients face. Today, the mission of Vibrant Health is more crucially important than ever.

Wyandotte County is being hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. Well before this health crisis, 27% of children in Wyandotte lived in poverty – almost 2x that of Johnson County – and the unemployment rate was almost 5%. As the pandemic transpires, unemployment levels continue to rise. As a result, there is an influx of newly uninsured single adults and families, needing access to affordable, vital health care.

Each year, we provide over $2.5 million in charitable health care with the support of public and private philanthropy. It is essential that we survive this time of financial strain prepared to serve a growing population of patients who need access to affordable, quality care more than ever. We can accomplish that with your support.

Please consider contributing to this vital campaign. 100% of the proceeds will directly provide high quality, accessible health care for children and adults in need – allowing Vibrant Health to continue in its mission to reduce health disparities and increase access to care in Wyandotte County. Thank you for providing the readiness to respond to the immediate and future challenges.
