In 2016, the Humana Foundation donated $360,000 to disaster relief efforts across the country.
In response to Hurricane Matthew, the Foundation donated $115,000 to three nonprofit organizations that provided support to those affected in Florida and North Carolina. In southeastern Louisiana, where flooding wreaked havoc in 2016, the Foundation donated to two nonprofit organizations that provided support to those affected and matched associate gifts up to $25,000. While providing funds for short-term and long-term relief efforts is a considerable help to communities in need, Humana also focuses on our internal processes, making it easier for our members to achieve their best health, especially during trying times.
For example, in Louisiana, Humana launched a series of disaster relief efforts assisting our associates, members and their communities after the August 2016 flooding. We took the following steps to make it easier for people to manage their health:
