"I had an appointment at a public office, and a person from the Community Council approached me and asked me if my children were covered with Medicaid or CHIP. I said I didn't think they would qualify. She said it wouldn't hurt to try, so I did.

After a few weeks I got Medicaid for my children. I was, and am so happy. I appreciate this program so much. It means a lot to me that a person cares about helping families. I always share my story with family and friends and give out her number, knowing that she will help them as she helped me.”
