Safety Net honored Alissa Boyd, Outstanding Outreach Partner for the Coastal Campaign for Healthy Kids at the Full Council Meeting on January 29, 2018. She is Senior Branch Manager of the Oglethorpe Mall Library and formerly Senior Branch Manager of the Bull Street Library. The Live Oak Public Library System has been a key and much beloved outreach partner for the Coastal Campaign for Healthy Kids and an unwavering supporter of universal health coverage for Medicaid-eligible children and other public benefits enrollment services for citizens in its service area.

Alissa met Campaign Manager, Eva Elmer of Safety Net and Robyn Wainner of Step Up Savannah at a Public Benefits training for Live Oak staff in January 2015. At the end of that session, she approached Eva and asked if it would be possible to offer public benefit enrollment help at the Bull St. Branch. Eva was very excited about this opportunity because the libraries are such an important part of the community and perfect partnership for benefits assistance. The 2nd Tuesday of each month was set for a recurring enrollment event starting in March 2015. Publicity was sent out, the enrollment assistors came and set up and no one came… Undeterred, Alissa and the Campaign staff plugged along, April, May, June, July…every 2nd Tuesday, the Campaign set up and no one came. In August, however, thanks to a reporter doing a “live remote” in front of the Bull St. Library steps early in the morning on the day of our event, there were 12 people waiting for our enrollers at 6pm that evening! Since then, the Bull Street Library enrollment event has became a key site to access children’s public health insurance enrollment assistance. Who doesn’t love going to the Library?!

In June 2017, the Campaign expanded services to 5 additional counties, Bryan, Effingham, Liberty, Long and McIntosh and Alissa helped facilitate the set up of recurring enrollment events at the Hinesville, Midway/Riceboro and Rincon Branches and to expand to the Oglethorpe Mall Branch. In 2016, Campaign Mobile Enrollers served 76 families with Medicaid, Peachcare for Kids, Pregnancy, SNAP, CAPs enrollment assistance. In 2017, we served 111 families and 28% of all children Safety Net has helped enroll were served at a Live Oak Public Library! Thank you so much, Alissa!

SCCPSS Announces Partnership with Curtis V. Cooper Primary Health Care, Inc. https://coastalcampaign.org/2018/01/24/sccpss-announces-partnership-with-curtis-v-cooper-primary-health-care-inc-school-based-initiative-will-extend-health-care-services-to-families/ https://coastalcampaign.org/2018/01/24/sccpss-announces-partnership-with-curtis-v-cooper-primary-health-care-inc-school-based-initiative-will-extend-health-care-services-to-families/#respond Wed, 24 Jan 2018 18:51:22 +0000 https://coastalcampaign.org/?p=1347 Read More]]> Savannah-Chatham Public Schools will showcase a new school based partnership that will bring the mobile services of the Curtis V. Cooper Primary Health Care providers directly to SCCPSS families.

This collaborative effort exemplifies shared goals of each organization to ensure child and family well-being. Greater collaboration and a stronger infusion of community services for the students and families of the school district is an area of focus for Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Ann Levett. “We’re committed to the growth of the whole child, as we know that healthy, happy students perform better in school,” she said. “Being able to grow our partnerships and directly connect resources to our families is beneficial to all involved and we can’t thank enough the leadership of Curtis V. Cooper for their dedicated support of our mission.”

Albert Grandy, Curtis V. Cooper Chief Executive Officer stated, “We look forward to expanding access to needed health services for our community. Most safety-net providers of care believe SCCPSS is the primary genesis and we expect this partnership to galvanize our community. I would be remiss without acknowledging Dr. Levett’s foresight and the SCCPSS’s support to engage in this partnership.”

The partnership will provide a Mobile Healthcare Unit that will visit area schools at designated times. Curtis V. Cooper Primary Health Care, Inc. (CVCPHC) is a non-profit community health center, funded federally and locally to serve citizens of the Savannah-Chatham County area. Services date back to 1971, when Dr. Curtis V. Cooper organized a group of citizens from the west side of Savannah for the sole purpose of funding a primary health care center to serve the under-served. Today, there are seven delivery sites and approximately 150 staff members, including 30 healthcare providers serving over 19,000 patients. Services include primary care, prenatal, podiatry, radiology, pharmacy, dentistry, behavioral health, patient assistance, outreach, enrollment and more.

Now, with a Mobile Health Services Unit, healthcare services will have greater reach for the families of the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System.

The partnership kickoff will take place at various locations during the week of January 29. SCCPSS parents and the public are invited to attend the events and learn more. Each venue will include a tour of the Mobile Healthcare Unit, family fun activities, and information from other partners including Peach State, Amerigroup, Well Care, and Care Source. SCCPSS Administrative staff, along with Dr. Ann Levett, Superintendent of Schools, and Mr. Albert Grandy, Chief Executive Officer of Curtis V. Cooper Primary Healthcare, Inc., will be on hand to share more partnership details and answer questions.

Juwana Hightower Recognized as Top Enrollment Assistor! https://coastalcampaign.org/2018/01/19/juwana-hightower-recognized-as-top-enrollment-assistor/ https://coastalcampaign.org/2018/01/19/juwana-hightower-recognized-as-top-enrollment-assistor/#respond Fri, 19 Jan 2018 21:57:28 +0000 https://coastalcampaign.org/?p=1341 Read More]]> Juwana Hightower has been recognized as Outstanding Enrollment Assistor for the Coastal Campaign for Healthy Kids at the December 2017 Chatham County Safety Net Full Council Meeting.  She demonstrates her commitment everyday to the families she serves as Public Benefits Coordinator at St. Mary’s Community Center.  St. Mary’s under the leadership of Sr. Pat Baber continues to reign as superstar enrollment assistance partner organization for the Coastal Campaign for Healthy Kids!
We are very happy today to recognize Juwana because even though she hasn’t been a part of the Coastal Campaign for very long – just six months (May-October 2017) her enrollments have accounted for 40.2% of all children applied for during that period (287 children out of 712 kids total). That is an extraordinary number!! She has also broken the record for the highest total number of children served within a single month at 77 in May 2017. She then broke her own record the next month by applying on behalf of another 78 children in June. All in all she accounted for 22% of all families served during those 6 months and because of this accomplishment, we are honored to spotlight her achievement.

St. Joseph/Candler Health System, St. Mary’s Community Center is located at 812 W. 36th St. in Savannah.  If you would like to make an appointment, call her at 912-447-0578.

Lewis Pediatric Center.  Along with team members, Shana Fennell and Quonica Slay, J.C. Lewis has referred 16 families in need of Medicaid enrollment assistance to the Coastal Campaign!

Outreach partners are absolutely critical to the Coastal Campaign for Healthy Kids. They are the trusted partners working directly with families who help us find those hard to reach parents & guardians of uninsured children. They are actively asking the question, “Does your child have health coverage?” and if not, they provide the direct referral to the Coastal Campaign.  We appreciate the level of trust our outreach partners give when they send one of “their families” to our enrollment assistors and we will strive to continue to earn that trust.

J.C. Lewis Pediatric Center is located at Waters and 54th St. in Savannah.  If you would like to make an appointment, call 912-352-3845.
