Highlands Foundation thank you notes from some of the charities that received our help last year

The Highlands foundation appreciates all of our donors. We do receive many ‘thank you’ letters from the charities we support and have reproduced some of them for your review below.  There are many more institutions than space available to share with you.  Your gifts to our foundation means so much to all of the charities that we support.  Thanks to all of you for your help in making Eastern Kentucky a better place for families in need.

Big Sandy Health Care, Inc. and AppalReD Legal Aid are so thankful for the funding from the Highlands Foundation which allowed us to make our medical-legal partnership (MLP) a reality.  This MLP, the first in Eastern Kentucky, embeds an attorney in Big Sandy Health Care’s clinics which brings the attorney to patients who otherwise would not have received this critical legal assistance.

BSHC: James Herald, COO and General Counsel

AppalReD: Evan Smith, Advocacy Director
