1. In collaboration with PA Insurance Department, partners will assist
IDAAY identify/enroll eligible children and youth into Pennsylvania's
Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Thousands of African
American children and youth are eligible for CHIP but are not
enrolled. In Pennsylvania (in particular, Philadelphia), there is no
reason for any child to go without health insurance coverage. CHIP
covers all PA kids. Most eligible families qualify for free CHIP,
while others can enroll at a very low cost.
2. In collaboration with Philadelphia Fire Department, partners will
assist IDAAY identify homes in which young persons reside without
smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. According to Philadelphia
Fire Department statistics for 2005, of the fifty-two (52) fire
deaths, twenty-nine (29) deaths occurred in twenty-four (24)
properties that did not have smoke alarms or had alarms with dead or
missing batteries. This Initiative will assist similar homes by
equipping them with adequate smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
Please join us in launching our Kids Safe Neighborhoods initiative at
our new administrative office. We can all be Kids Champions by
actively spreading the word in our community about the importance of
quality health care and reliable fire prevention for a deserving
segment of our population.
