Mission Statement

The mission of Give for a Smile is to provide a free service to everyone in our communities. Among the many services we provide, the main one is to assistance them to find, obtain, and maintain medical coverage at not cost or the lowest cost possible. The ultimate goal of our mission is to treat every family with the respect and high quality service they deserve, as well as to be able to provide them with the minimum standard required to live with dignity. But above all is to, it is imperative to us that everyone has medical coverage because healthy societies begins with a good health coverage.

Background Statement

Give For a Smile (GFAS), a community based organization, is a firm believer that families with good health are the base of a strong and healthy society; hence committed to assist everyone obtain health insurance.

 

We, at GFAS, understand that the most effective way to reach families, maintain them informed, provide effective enrollment assistance and help maintain clients insured, is by performing continuous effective outreaches. We have already established a presence in supermarkets, churches, school districts, health fairs, family resource centers, libraries, parks, youth soccer leagues, and city social activities all over north and central Orange as well as South L.A. Counties.

During open enrollment process, we divide our efforts in three phases. In the first phase we concentrate in letting communities and families know the benefits of having health insurance by performing periodic massive and individual outreaches. Although this effort was originally designed to educate and introduce communities to the different options Covered Ca has to offer. Today this activity has become GFSA’s biggest priority.

These outreach efforts have allowed us to meet and serve people from all income levels, sexual orientations, age, ethnic groups, and religious preferences. In addition to this great mix of people, we also serve mixed racial, and mixed legal status families. From this great mix of people we have effectively assisted approximately sixty five percent Hispanics, thirty five percent Caucasians, and the rest split between Vietnamese, African American, Middle Easterners, Japanese, and Filipino populations.

Since Covered Ca law became active, we have always actively and successfully participated as educators and counselors throughout pre, during, and post enrollment process. In 2014, we were the 75th organization with the most enrollments in the State, and the 3rd one in Orange County. For the 2015 open enrolment, we were part of a Coalition lead by IHA. For this period we were the organization with the most effectuated enrollments.


Impact Statement

Give For a Smile has been part of the Covered Ca project since it begun and has effectively performed in every enrollment period. In the first open enrollment we worked alone with 3 counselors and achieved the 74th place in California and 3rd place in O.C. In the second open enrollment we were part of the collaborative from Institute for Healthcare Advancement for Covered OC’s Regional Navigator Grant which GFAS was the highest performing subcontractor. The counselors' dedication to their mission of providing families with the necessary knowledge to help them understand and make wise decisions when navigating through this complex health care system is clear in everything they do to serve the community. Give For a Smile’s leadership and Certified Enrollment Counselors go above and beyond to serve consumers in Orange and Los Angeles Counties.

Needs Statement

Give For a Smile  have noticed the tremendous need our communities have, so to be able to provide this quality service to more communities in more cities we must:
1.- Hire more personnel (navigators, office clerk, and data entry).
2.- Have a centralized operations center (an office with central phone number and computers and fax).
3.- Specialized operations support such as accounting, HR, Attorney, etc)
4.- Grant  writer. 
 5.- Volunteers.

CEO Statement

 Give for a Smile has become an asset to our society by helping reduce the number of uninsured families in our communities. This help reduces the overall emergency costs involved when the primary care can eliminate affections by a simple visit to the doctor. Our goal is to be able to reach many more uninsured  families and provide them help them obtain a medical coverage offered by our State's Health Safety Net. In addition, we are assisting them obtaining food stamps, housing, community clinics, and many other referral services.

 


Board Chair Statement

Originally, at Give for a Smile we were able to manage our small operations and distribute the workload successfully and evenly among our volunteers. Today our goal is to increase the size of our operations from a small to a mid-size operations organization; thus be able to fulfill the increasing demand there is for our service. Expansion had been inevitable and requests to provide this service come from all over Orange County, and South Los Angeles. Our everyday challenge is to be able to distribute our  workforce and load thoroughly is such way that no one is left without service/benefit.

Programs


Outreach, Enrollment and Retention

With our Community Social Assistance Program (CSAP),we are providing
free assistance to all low and intermediate income families of all ethnic backgrounds living in the cities of North-West Orange county find, apply, enroll, and maintain medical coverage services available under the health safety net (MSI, Medical former healthy family, California Kids, and Kaiser Kids, community clinics). We also assist families with food stamps application process, and housing, mental health, and many other referral services. Through our extensive outreach service, we are able to inform and educate families regarding new Health Reform (ACA), as well as many other programs, and family/social issues.

This program was designed to reach communities by establishing assistance points at the different public locations such as family Resource Centers, medical clinics, and health fairs. By establishing these prescence we could, by enterviewing prospects, determine their elegibility and assist with the aplication process. We also perform constant follow ups to assure their medical coverage continuity.
Budget  $75,000.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Health Care Referrals
Population Served General/Unspecified Hispanic, Latino Heritage Minorities
Program Short-Term Success 

Our short-term success is that a limited group of professionals we have been able to reach high-risk communities where medical insurance coverage has been a very low priority issue to their lives. Ninety eight percent of the families we have contacted this year live in extreme poverty of which thirty to forty percent of them are two or three families living in a one-bedroom apartments and have between three to five kids. In our small-scale operations, we have serviced nine thousand individuals from all ages. With this program, we forecast an increment of one hundred percent.

Program Long-Term Success  Give For a Smile’s CSAP will reduce the State and federal cost by providing every child and adults with medical coverage and an assigned PCP whom will provide with primary medical attention, vaccines, regular check ups; thus prevent E.R. visits, chronic illness, and ultimately an increase of cost in medical services due to untreated minor health issues. This preventive medical service will contribute to the optimal physical and mental development of children, which is essential to obtain better results at school as well as the bases to prepare them for a more successful life
Program Success Monitored By 

 We have developed a Data Base which our CAAs can access through internet and enter all information in our Data Base. We monitor this data weekly and make sure every CAA is following through every new and renewal enrollment. We maintain a record of every individual contacted in our outreach activities that later are assigned to our CAAs. Our CAA’s must enter their information in our DB and describe the service provided.

 

Examples of Program Success   Thanks to our Community Social Assistance Program (CSAP), one seek, single, unemployed, and homeless father, whose wife had died of cancer few months earlier, and his 16 year olds son who suffered autism, obtained medical coverage and a place to live. Today, he and his son have a medical coverage, and he is planning to go back to work as soon as he finds assistance with his son. Another woman, homeless with four children, received medical coverage for her and all her children.
Most of the stories are more complex. One undocumented woman, mother and wife of two girls, was through one of our community clinic referrals, diagnosed with cancer. After this sad event, Give For a Smile was able to find resources and get her accepted to a hospital, unfortunately due to the advance condition of her cancer she passed away. Until today, we continue providing support to the father and children.
 
We are currently assisting close to 10,000 individuals in North West Orange County, and looking to expand and be able to serve many more.
