About DAVIES PROJECT FOR MID-MICHIGAN CHILDREN

Location:

230 Bingham Street, Suite 100, LANSING, MI 48912, US

Mission Statement

To connect families to resources and community by providing reliable transportation for seriously ill children and pregnant women to essential healthcare.

Description

Volunteer drivers provide rides to medical appointments for children with a serious health condition, pregnant women, and for parents with a baby in the NICU if no car is available.

80% of pediatric care takes place in the outpatient setting. In Greater Lansing, 70% of the children who rely on the local subspecialty clinics for treatment of serious health illnesses clinics are on Medicaid. Poor transportation options contribute to their missing 60% of their medical appointments.

In addition to providing free rides to medical care, volunteer drivers are a connection for families who often feel highly stressed during a health crisis. Having a connection to the larger community helps families feel less isolated and a little more supported.

Dependable access to medical appointments helps doctors provide timely treatment, improves children’s health outcomes and fulfills a critical need in the community. Hundreds of children are healthier today because they did not miss crucial medical appointments due to transportation challenges.
