Dr. Beth Grosshans is a retired New Jersey clinical psychologist with a career in private practice and consultation that dates back to 1994. Outside of the professional arena, Dr. Beth Grosshans has a long history of cultural patronage and community involvement. United Against Poverty (UP) Indian River County recently named her to a steering committee that aims to acquire funding for a new health care clinic.
UP began as the Harvest Food & Outreach Center, a modest nonprofit organization on Old Dixie Highway in Vero Beach. Today, UP serves approximately 2,500 families each day, combatting poverty and inspiring economic self-sufficiency through its Indian River County facilities, as well as additional branches in Fort Pierce and Orlando.
One of UP Indian River County’s key programs is its Member Share Grocery. This program provides food and household aid in a dignified manner by letting families individually choose food items to meet their specific nutritional needs.
The Member Share Grocery program is open to all families with household incomes that are 200 percent or further below the federal poverty level. Qualifying members contribute a small handling fee for every grocery item that they take home from the Member Share Grocery center.
