I currently and for the past 21 years have held the title of General Assistance Director for Winfield Township, one of the 9 townships within DuPage County, Illinois. The state-mandated cash assistance program which I administer includes a medical component for the recipients. Access DuPage has been invaluable to our clients and the township by providing low-cost prescriptions and physician visits. Generic prescriptions are $5 for the members of Access DuPage. Doctor visits can range from $5 to $15 including specialists. For recipients of our General Assistance program, even these small co-pays are out of reach. The township must make these payments for its G.A. Recipients and many of the precriptions can be quite costly for a local government's budget to bear. Being able to make the small co-pay instead of paying retail is a benefit to the township. Having low-income, chronically needy individuals in the Access DuPage program will ultimately forestall catastrophic medical issues by assigning people to primary medical care physicians or clinics. I wholly endorse this charily program as does Winfield Township by budgeting $7000 per year to Access DuPage

As a staff member of an affordable housing organization, I rely on other efficient, effective nonprofits to provide crucial services, like healthcare, for our residents. Access DuPage provides such comprehensive care options at incredibly low cost and is often the only healthcare provider that we can refer our residents to. I applaud Access DuPage for their efforts and their consistency in providing great healthcare service for their clients.

DuPage County is fairly affluent, yet there are a large number of uninsured and underinsured residents as well. Access DuPage serves our community by screening clients seeking health care services, linking them to needed health services and/or a primary care-giver, and coordinating specialized services when neccessary. As is the case elsewhere, funding is often inadequate to the growing need, so Access DuPage must also seek grants, in-kind services, and other means of financial support in order to serve their clients. The most important aspect seems to be serving the clients with dignity, expertise, efficiency, and concern.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my work with refugees who have been settled in DuPage County. Not all of them qualify for Medicaid and their jobs seldom provide benefits. Access DuPage is the only place they can be assigned to a primary care doctor, rather than relying on the local ER

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the eyes of those who know they can now see a doctor without waiting hours and hours in the ER

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

clearly dedicated and able to work well with those who cannot speak very much English.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

give some of it to other organizations--they do not need $10 million because they serve as the central hub, screening patients and then linking them to clinics, hospitals, doctors, and specialties.
