MPCA is proud to welcome 7 new AmeriCorps Community Navigators to our children’s health insurance outreach and enrollment initiative:
- Aaron Seagraves, Jackson County
- Natasha Robinson, Kalamazoo County
- Tonya Morris, Wayne County
- Michell Thompson, Genesee County
- Tyra Holton, Kalamazoo County
- Dionna Smith, Oakland County
- McLain McGrath, Berrien County
Community Navigators provide both in-person and over-the-phone assistance for families in a variety of different environments, not only enrolling children in quality health coverage programs, but working to help them better understand their benefits, find a medical home and get referrals to other helpful programs and services.
While MPCA’s newest Community Navigators are concentrated on Michigan’s southern lower peninsula we still have 6 additional Outreach Specialists serving state-wide that also provide outreach and enrollment assistance in Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula. (Based in Lake, Charlevoix and Marquette Counties)
