Northwest Family Services, 6200 SE King Road Portland, OR 97222

This week marks the anniversary of Medicaid, the nation’s reliable safety net for millions of people for whom access to quality health care would otherwise be unaffordable.

Still, the promise of affordable health care access eludes far too many hardworking, struggling families.

Unanimous yes vote!
