United Way Worldwide

United Way Worldwide (based in Washington D.C.) commissioned Alpheus Media to document their work promoting public health in two cities: South Salt Lake, Utah, and Camden, New Jersey. Both cities are notorious for high crime rates. Alpheus took cameras to the streets, parks, and corner stores to show the difficulty that residents have finding healthy food and safe places to play and exercise. The innovative partnerships and programs spearheaded by the United Way, such as bringing fruits and vegetables to corner stores and creating healthy programming in existing parks, are making a difference in the lives of the citizens of Camden and South Salt Lake as people begin to get back outside and develop healthy habits. We deeply appreciate the cooperation of the local United Ways in bringing these stories to life.
