Reassure the Uninsured

Tom and Mimi

Although the nation-wide uninsured rate is at an all time low, there are still millions of Americans without health insurance and unable to receive the quality medical help they need.

One out of every four children or family members suffers from some type of mental health or addiction disease. It can be devastating to deal with a mental health illness
and tragic when the treatment necessary to insure stability is unavailable. Although mental illnesses can be life threatening, sufferers can be successfully treated over 80% of the time with medications, therapy, and lifestyle changes.

The Freeman family believes this is a serious and very important issue to our communities. In 2005, Tom and Mimi Freeman spearheaded the creation of the Tom
and Mimi Freeman Family Endowment Fund for the Uninsured and Underinsured. The Endowment provides assistance to people who do not have public or private insurance with reimbursement for mental health care. Many Coleman clients have benefitted from the Freeman Endowment since it was created. Over $80,000 have been raised to help provide funding to those most vulnerable and suffering from severe and persistent mental illness.

To help reach the $100,000 milestone, Tom Freeman has agreed to match $10,000 in fund contributions.

As the State of Ohio continues to grow and Medicaid and the Affordable Healthcare Act are modified, there continues to be a need for support of the uninsured and underinsured. The Freeman family has been at the forefront of efforts to extend treatment to all who need it, without regard to their ability to pay.
