Your donations are valued. The need is great.

Get Healthy DeSoto does valuable work in the community. Since the pandemic struck, we’ve tried to remain focused on health (with an occasional sleeve tattoo thrown in) but not just physical health. There has been more time spent deliberately highlighting mental health because those were the first services to recede and can be more difficult to deliver in a virtual environment. Yes, the organization obviously does other things.
