The Affordable Care Act Volunteers of Monroe County Incorporated launched their Faith Neighbors Campaign on Sunday. The campaign is designed to directly contact each faith community in Monroe County. David Meyer is president of the group.
“The Faith Neighbors Campaign is an outreach effort to all communities of faith in Monroe County,” Meyer says, “We count about 155 of them, and we send them packages that include takeaway information at our free public events.”
The ACA Volunteers of Monroe County will provide information to those in need at various congregations. Their goal is to help community members learn more about the Affordable Care Act and how it will affect them.
“Ultimately, it’s about cutting through both the political and controversial new cycle on the Affordable Care Act,” Meyers says, “We want to get down to what it means for us and have a practical discussion about the ACA.”
Meyer says that they have reached out to 400 so far, and are hoping to reach out to over 1,000 people in the next four weeks.
