As a longtime public educator, I am proud to recommend this community-based organization. PediPlace works tirelessly to make healthcare a reality for all children. When you help with healthcare, dentalcare, nutritiion of a child, you actually are investing in more than one generation. As a proud American, it disappoints me that we cannot take care of the basic needs of our children - our most valuable asset! I'm proud of the PediPlace staff that take care of the medical needs of over 100+ kids each day.

We have a healthcare crisis in this country and in Texas. We have an increasing number of children who no longer have access to healthcare due to being uninsured or underinsured. PediPlace has helped fill this void and make healthcare a reality for those children also. Without PediPlace, our most vulnerable members of society would be without healthcare. Thank you for all you do for our children.

The mission of PediPlace is to make healthcare a reality for every kid. How do we do that with so many uninsured and underinsured children? Well, we have to start at the local level and PediPlace does that. Instead of going to an emergency room just when they are sick, PediPlace gives the kids in its area a doctor's office to go to when they are sick or well. It accepts kids with Medicaid, kids without insurance and even kids who have insurance but it has high deductibles or it otherwise leaves them exposed. I have been proud to have been a part of PediPlace for seventeen years in one capacity or another whether its volunteer, donor or board member. When you go into the office and see how kids are treated the same as you would at any doctor's office across the country, you see that it is possible to make healthcare a reality for evey kid.
