“The doctor gave me my life back. I was so used to hurting that I had forgotten what it feels like not to hurt.”
In 2017, with your generous support, Access to Care provided essential primary care at $5 copays for 5,665 Cook County residents.
Our clients are people we see and work with daily- hair dressers, baristas, preschool teachers and waitresses . For many of them, we are their only source of affordable health care. One in ten people in Cook County are uninsured, and with continuing changes to the Affordable Care Act, the need is critical in our community.
With your help, we can make a difference. Please consider supporting Access to Care today! Donate, share, start your own campaign and spread the word. Every little bit makes a difference and every voice can help bring change.
Give the gift of health to someone in need and help us close the gap for the uninsured in Cook County.

“I am a volunteer for the Access to Care program. As a health care professional, I have seen many adverse changes take place over the past several years. It gives me enormous satisfaction to participate in fund raising activities to help ensure this program remains vital in providing quality health care to those who otherwise would have none.” Pam Camporese
