One in four Texans lives at or below the poverty level; for children, it's nearly one in three. More than 6.3 million Texans - including 1.2 million children - lack health insurance. The uninsured are up to four times less likely to have a regular source of health care and are more likely to die from health-related problems. Related to communicable diseases, it is estimated that 1 in 4 children living in Texas go without all the necessary immunizations to lead healthy, happy lives due to a lack of affordability and access to medical care. Finally, lacking a medical home, most often uninsured people tend to look for health care in the emergency room, the most expensive setting they could possibly choose.

Providing Affordable, Accessible Medical Care

Through its primary community outreach effort, the Care Van® Program, Caring for Children Foundation of Texas is providing direct access to immunizations and life-saving vaccines for children. "We know that vaccines work, and we believe every child should receive all age-appropriate vaccines. Immunizations give the kids we serve a chance to lead a healthier life."

In this blog post, America's Charities takes a closer look at how Caring for Children Foundation of Texas is working with businesses and community partners throughout Texas to solve this issue, and how other organizations and their employees can get involved.
