September 10, 2014: Greater Family Health has been awarded a State of Illinois grant to support outreach and enrollment services to help area residents secure health insurance.
For the second year in a row, Greater Family Health is among a select group of non-profits identified by Illinois Department of Public Health to engage in outreach and enrollment activities. With funding allocated up to April 15, 2015, Greater Family Health will hire several In-Person Counselors to achieve the grant’s projected outcomes.
In-Person Counselors will complete both Federal and State training requirements to secure certification and become licensed through the Illinois Department of Insurance. They will subsequently engage in outreach activities throughout Kane, McHenry and northwest Cook counties. Outreach will occur at Greater Family Health Centers and in a variety of community-based locations including churches, clubs, libraries, educational institutions and human service organizations.
Greater Family Health offers care out of 28 Health Centers, with 6 of those full-time locations located in Elgin, McHenry, Streamwood and Sycamore. Pediatrics, Obstetrics, Family Medicine, Gynecology, Psychiatry, Dental Care and an array of supportive ancillary services are offered.
