A NEW YEAR 2017 has brought a few changes to TCHP! Shannon Watson has moved on to new endeavors. Her service and dedication to TCHP and the community is truly appreciated. Good luck to you, Shannon! The board of directors would like you to help us welcome Kim Lamansky. Kim brings a strong background of marketing and fundraising experience and is excited to meet all of our sponsors, donors and volunteers. When not at TCHP, Kim loves to spend time on stage at a community theater, time with family, and of course, cheering on the Packers! Please feel free to stop in to the clinic and welcome her! Timothy Smith, Board Chairman

WHAT’S NEW Hello from the Executive Director Welcome Home! Have you noticed in previous newsletters, emails, websites and more, a picture of our building is usually shown? When is the last time you came to see us? Have you witnessed first-hand the warmth of the lobby and the friendly greeting you will get from our staff? While my background as a professional ranges from sales, events and marketing to the President of a chamber, I had a gap of 5 years without health insurance. Companies I worked for were too small to offer it and the ACA was just not an affordable option, so I utilized a free clinic in the Joliet area. While the staff was professional and helpful, I couldn’t shake the feeling of embarrassment. The facility was very cold, impersonal…clinical. But our building is more than a free clinic… it’s a home. And just as you welcome your family and friends into yours, we are proud to do the same for our patients. Walking into TCHP, a feeling of warmth and caring is palpable. Our staff and volunteers recognize that patients all need a different level of assistance at times in their lives, and treat all who enter with dignity and respect. I encourage you to stop in and say hello. See for yourself how your donations and volunteerism are having a huge impact on our patients. Kim Lamansky In 2016, 429 low-income patients took advantage of free care with over 1,800 visits. That could not have happened without help from individuals and businesses like you. Did you know that for every $1 raised, we can offer $20 in service to our patients? Your giving helps numerous residents of Central Kane County in a way that is real and impactful. For example, take the woman who struggled to find a job because she needed some major dental work done. She had no self confidence, no joy. But because of donations like yours, she was able to have a full set of dentures at NO COST. The future is as bright as her smile! How about the man who has struggled to keep his diabetes under control? His numbers were dangerously high, but because of people like you, he has access to FREE testing strips, monitoring, education and medication.
