There is a free medical clinic being put on by Cascade Medical Teams. Here’s the info I have on it below. Please pass on to anyone and everyone, you never know who in our community could benefit from this and it would be terrible if they missed out. Over twenty percent of adults in Lane County do not have health insurance.

We at the Co-op Family Center value the sense of community that is created through parent and family participation. This sense of community comes from families having relationships with each other as well as the teachers at the Co-op. The Co-op Family Center is a co-operative effort by university families and center staff to raise happy, healthy, compassionate and socially confident children who are prepared for challenges beyond the security of the center. Through co-oping and many family gatherings we hope to provide a warm and welcoming environment for families. Including families in the journey of the daily life of our center has been the inspiration of the Co-op Family Center since its beginning.
Child Care Subsidy, an incidental fee funded program, pays a percentage of child care expenses for low-income student parents. The goal of the program is to ease the financial pressure of paying child care expenses while also paying college tuition. Based on their need level, parents receive a subsidy ranging from 20%-50%.
The subsidy applies to the fiscal year of July 1 to June 30; consequently, student parents must reapply every school year (student parents attending summer school must reapply at the beginning of the summer to receive subsidy for the summer and the following school year). New applications for each year will be available in JUNE, both online and in our office.
The ASUO Subsidy Task Force determines the number of subsidy recipients. Roughly, the first 190 eligible applicants are awarded subsidy [subject to change to stay within budget]. The Task Force also rules on exceptions that are filed by students. All incidental fee paying students are eligible to attend and vote in Task Force meetings– we encourage you to attend the meetings and help decide exceptions and vote on Child Care Subsidy policies that are up for review. For more information on Task Force meetings, please inquire at the Subsidy desk.
Upcoming Task Force Meetings:
Wednesday, November 18th, 2009 at 4pm in the Men’s Center
What is a task force meeting?
The task force meetings are held to discuss and vote on exceptions to Child Care Subsidy policy, due to extenuating circumstances. In order to reach a verdict, we must have AT LEAST 5 incidental fee paying students to vote. I encourage all Child Care Subsidy recipients to attend if they can, as the exceptions request exemption from policies that dictate or determine the amount of funds you receive from this program. I also encourage any and all students available to attend, as this program is funded entirely by the student incidental fee (money from the student’s pocket). At the meeting we will go over the proposed exceptions. If the student requesting the exception is present, they will present their case. If not present, I will explain the exception and situation (maintaining the parents anonymity). After, we will all vote to approve or deny the exceptions.
All forms are available for download (in .pdf format–Adobe Acrobat is required). Forms are also available in the Child Care Subsidy office and outside the ASUO Office.
