Testimonials

"You are a pleasure to work with and I am so glad that we were able to connect! I can't tell you how great it is to have a parent or student tell us that they don't have insurance and be able to refer them directly to you. It's wonderful to have this resource.” 

Michael Landeck, Director of Operations - Indianapolis Metropolitan High School 

 

"I have to reiterate how much our Healthy Start Communities that C.A.R.E. (HSCC) team appreciates Collette and the impact she has on those expectant mothers and their babies!  The direct partnership between the CKC-IN team and the HSCC team has been invaluable for the HSCC participants and families.  Thanks a million!"

Joanah R. Wischmeier, BSN, RN, Program Director, HSCC

 

"Kathy was available to us early in our implementation year and created a very warm and welcoming relationship for us right from the beginning. She is easily accessible and always follows through in a timely manner, if not sooner than expected, crushing barriers faced by our clients where the complexities of Medicaid are concerned. We are so very grateful for the partnership we have with Kathy Walker, Connecting Kids to Coverage-Indiana, and Indiana Rural Health Association."

Dawn Wilkins, Nurse Supervisor - Nurse-Family Partnership, Elkhart, St. Joseph, and LaPorte County
