May 6th is the Seattle Foundation’s annual GiveBIG, a one-day, online giving event to inspire people to give (at all levels) in our region.

Since the launch of open enrollment on Oct. 1, Neighborcare’s team of enrollment specialists has been out in the community getting uninsured Seattleites enrolled in the Health Benefit Exchange at community fairs, libraries, clinics, churches, farmers markets – you name it. As of April 4, Neighborcare Health eligibility staff have enrolled 8,853 people.
Prathiba Pinnamaneni (prounounced Pin-ah-mah-nay-nee) began her career as a graduate student intern at Neighborcare Health in 2004. This month she became the Director of Improvement, but she has worn many Neighborcare hats over the past 10 years.
Neighborcare’s Eligibility Team is here to help! All uninsured patients who need assistance learning if they qualify for public insurance through the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and Washington Healthplanfinder can make an appointment with our Eligibility Specialists.

Neighborcare Health is proud to partner with the Whole Foods Interbay Store for their 5% Day Thursday, September 19th. 5% of all sales that day will be donated to Neighborcare Health's Pumpkin Push 5K to Care for Seattle's Homeless, benefitting more than 8,200 homeless or recently homeless patients currently receiving health care at Neighborcare Health.

On August 21, 2013, Neighborcare staff, volunteers and supporters will gather to celebrate 20 years of service at our 45th Street Homeless Youth Clinic (Youth Clinic) in Wallingford!
Youth Clinic operates on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, providing care to homeless, or recently homeless, youth on a walk-in basis. Services range from medical, dental and mental health to yoga, meditation and acupuncture.
August 11-17 is National Health Center Week. As Seattle’s leader in providing primary care to low-income, uninsured and homeless patients in our health centers, we happily recognize the important role health centers play not just in our community, but in communities across the country.

Neighborcare Health was a recipient of a two-year grant from the Washington State Office of the Attorney General to provide outreach to encourage swimming for underserved communities, including subsidized swim passes and lessons. The grant began in June 2012 and will end May 2014. The initial mid-grant results reported in May are encouraging.
