Calling all advocates!
January 2017-Our homeless community members are among the most medically vulnerable people in the country, and will be significantly impacted if the ACA is repealed without an immediate replacement of coverage that ensures continued access to medical care.
The U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services released a new report on the impact of the Affordable Care Act. https://www.hhs.gov/about
Share the report and tweet/facebook message #ACAWorks and #ProtectOurCare.
Here is a list of resources/opportunities to help you get involved and advocate for continued healthcare coverage for our homeless community.
