Medicaid Renewal Alert
As a result of the COVID-19 public health emergency ending, states will soon be restarting Medicaid eligibility reviews. For many with disabilities, this means that they may lose critical Medicaid services and supports. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to be ready:
Verify that your contact information is updated. Make sure your state Medicaid agency has your current mailing address, phone number, email, or other contact information so they can easily contact you about your Medicaid coverage.
Check your mail regularly. The state Medicaid agency will mail you a letter about the status of your Medicaid coverage. This letter will also let you know if you need to complete a renewal form to see if you still qualify for Medicaid.
Complete and send in your renewal form (if you get one). Fill out the form and return it to your Medicaid agency to help avoid a gap in your Medicaid.
If your Medicaid coverage has ended, visit HealthCare.gov to find an affordable, comprehensive health plan.

TRIGGER Screening hosted by Dunbar
Dunbar Community Counseling Services will be hosting a screening of the film TRIGGER on Friday, May 19, 2023 at the Belmont Mansion.
TRIGGER is both a call to understanding and a call to action about the roles each of us has to play in combatting the gun violence epidemic in Philadelphia and beyond.
Featuring storytellers from Philadelphia sharing their lived experiences with gun violence and their shared search for hope with a vengeance.
A father who lost his son, a trauma nurse at a city hospital, a high school principal, community activists, doctors, scholars, shooters, victims, and their families all share their stories revealing layers of hurt that extend beyond the individual, family, and first responders to entire communities in need of healing. And yet they each search for hope with a vengeance. These storytellers are committed to using their horrific experiences to help others. For some, resilience and hope are key elements of survival. TRIGGER is both a call to understanding and a call to action. Each of us has a role to play in combatting this gun violence epidemic.
Following in the footsteps of internationally recognized We Breathe, We Live: Brotherly Love Protest Stories, and together with creative partners FreshFly Films and PWPVideo, First Person Arts has created this documentary to help blanket the city of Philadelphia with trauma supports. We want to bring these powerful, first-person stories to your community and hear your stories.
