Alabama Child Caring Program


Thousands of Alabama children still do not receive the healthcare they need because their parents cannot afford medical insurance. These working parents earn too much money to qualify for government-assisted medical care, yet not enough to pay for medical coverage. The Caring Program makes it possible for parents to continue to work and gives them peace of mind of knowing that their children's healthcare needs will be met.
