Coming Together As One
The New Age Services Corporation (NASC) achieved an increase in COVID-19 vaccinations in their Chicago area communities by leveraging partnerships near and far. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) chapter nearly 700 miles away in Atlanta helped connect organizations for a COVID-19 vaccination clinic in Chicago’s West Side in March of 2022. Even City of East Point, Georgia Councilmember, Karen Rene got involved and introduced NASC to the NAACP chapter on the Westside for a vaccination event. NASC empowers individuals and families in the community through behavioral health.
