While the majority of Trumbull Memorial Health Foundation’s assets are available to meet the changing needs of the community related to the overall health and well-being of Trumbull County residents, the Foundation does have issue-specific funds that are used to support particular health related matters.

Wean Foundation Fund for Women’s and Children’s Health
The fund is used to support activities designed to improve the quality of women’s and children’s health in Trumbull County, Ohio, with a focus on underserved populations, particularly in the city of Warren. The intent is not to support organizations which have as their mission combatting specific diseases or conditions, but rather to address broader health issues such as, for example, infant mortality, low birth weight, access to women’s health care, healthy food or other priorities identified by Trumbull County in their periodic community health assessments. Acknowledging that the County’s priorities are often aimed at larger societal issues which impact health, the TMHF is permitted to consider grants to address these barriers to health as well, to the extent that they affect women and children.
The fund encourages strategies which engage residents to be active participants in and advocates for their healthy lives. Therefore, grants to support advocacy at the local and state level around policy issues bearing on the target population (such as access to health insurance, etc.) may be considered.
The fund values the efforts of the Healthy Community Partnership (HCP), a regional cross-sector collaborative working to address several of the County’s Community Health Improvement Plan priorities and strategies. Their current focus areas are (1) healthy food retail, (2) active transportation and (3) parks and green spaces. If your proposal is also focused on one or more of these areas, we highly encourage you to actively participate in the Healthy Community Partnership, as priority will be given to organizations that are. If you are not currently involved, please contact Casey Krell at firstname.lastname@example.org or 330-743-5555 to be connected.
While Trumbull County is the intended service area for distributions from this fund, we encourage openness to collaborative efforts which cross county lines, efforts which can lead to greater efficiencies and impact.
