Social Services support at Wheeling Health Right works to support individuals and their families through difficult times to ensure safety and freedom from harm.
What Social Services are offered?
Our team assists patients in applying for needed benefits that include but are not limited to:
- Food Stamps
- Utility Assistance
- Vocational Rehabilitation
- Child Care Assistance
Wheeling Health Right does not duplicate services offered at other social service agencies. We collaborate with these agencies to provide comprehensive care for all our clients. We also offer a West Virginia DHHR outstation worker, helping assist at our location.
We do not provide services to persons with VA benefits or insurance because of their access to care. This assures that those who are truly in need and without any alternate health coverage can access care at Wheeling Health Right.
Holiday Toy Drive
If you would like to participate, bring a new unwrapped gift appropriate for those age 0-18 years with a focus on tweens and teens. Below are some suggestions to get you started. Suggested Items: Action figures, arts & crafts kits, sports balls & equipment, books, Axe Body Spray sets, Bath & Body Works sets, journals, Legos, Matchbox cars, make-up kits, board games, warm hats and gloves, and winter clothing.
Don’t forget to include batteries if needed and please no toys representing violence.
Ohio County Blessing Boxes
The idea is simple: Provide access to shelf stable food to those who are not
able to get to existing food pantries. The box is well marked with the words FREE PANTRY and anyone who needs help is able to get what they need anonymously for themselves, their families, friends, and neighbors.
How to Donate
Simply go to one of the Blessings Boxes and place the items being donated onto one of the shelves. All items should be new, unopened, unexpired and not require refrigeration.
If you cannot get to the Blessings Box location you may arrange to drop off items with Ohio County Family Resource Network or Soup Kitchen of Greater Wheeling. Both organizations are also able to accept monetary donations to help support Blessings Boxes.
