Community Initiatives

United Way of Norman manages the following initiatives to fill gaps between community needs and agency response.

FamilyWize Prescription Discount Card
FamilyWize cards are FREE prescription drug discount cards. Available for use by anyone in the community, the cards can reduce the cost of medicine by an average of 30% or more at participating pharmacies.

Long Term Recovery
The recovery process following a disaster can be lengthy and expensive. Long term recovery continues community redevelopment after short term efforts immediately following the disaster have ended. Long term recovery presents opportunities to restructure the devastated region and simultaneously make it more disaster resistant.
