ACTS has convened a community coalition to address the problem of eligible but uninsured kids. This expansion means that children have increasingly gained access to necessary primary health care.

Heightened outreach and administrative streamlining have produced this healthy outcome.

ACTS partners in this important undertaking were: County Executive Joanie Mahoney; Onondaga County Department of Social Services; Public Health Insurance Program of County Health Department; Dunbar Association; Salvation Army; Syracuse Northeast Community Center; Say Yes to Education; Syracuse City School District; Excellus Blue Cross/Blue Shield; Fidelis; Total Care (Syracuse Community Health Center); United Health Care, University Hospital, Onondaga County Legislator Linda Ervin; former governor's regional representative Dan Young and former Rep. Dan Maffei.

This public-private partnership has demonstrated that collaboration can generate great results for those in need, and especially for vulnerable children.

ACTS is a diverse interfaith mix of some 40 congregations and service/advocacy organizations. It will celebrate 10 years of championing social justice concerns at its April 19 Spring Banquet.
