No sooner do the case managers finish one call than the phone rings again! The County case managers at the Department of Family Services are going full throttle this month.
Panicked parents are trying to find out where they can take their children for physicals and immunizations so that they will be allowed to enroll in school in a few weeks. Relieved parents learn about the MCCP program and they are not only able to get the needed physicals, but they are hooked up with a pediatrician who will care for them on a regular basis…so no more panic! When the child becomes ill, the parent knows who to call. If the child needs a specialist, the County caseworker will locate one who will take the child. The child will begin to receive regular dental care. These are all great burdens lifted from a family. And the children can start the school year healthy and ready to learn. And we all know, there is no greater gift than good health.
But….the MCCP Foundation needs to pay for the medical and dental needs of our children. We pay the bills because YOU are generous and donate! Please click on the Donate button above and help get kids off to the right start in school. And please take the next step too – follow the directions to make your own mini-webpage and tell your friends about MCCP!
