Fall 2023 News
Resource Navigators First Gathering
Faculty, staff, and resource navigators gathering this fall.
A message from our Director Sarah
This Fall brings a return of many Community Resource Navigators who are working with Sheray (pictured in the center above) to provide clients referred from UW Health primary care clinics and Meadowood Health Partnerships with support to find essential resources. This Wisconsin Idea experience is a win-win for students and clients alike.  Reflection from a student: "Out of every class at UW-Madison, I have experienced the most personal growth in this one."  We are honored to offer such an impactful experience.
In this newsletter, we also share other happenings at CPP including updates on Q-HER Lab research and LIFT Wisconsin, an introduction to a new staff member, and a peek at what we are doing to maintain community at the Center.
Don't hesitate to refer friends and family to our advocacy services.
I wish you good health!
My best,  Sarah

LIFT Wisconsin Corner

You may have seen the public service announcement billboards around Dane and Racine counties. Other happenings at LIFT WI include the following. 

Child support tool launched! 

Too many parents are stuck owing more than they can afford in child support.  LegalTuneUp.org can now be used to adjust child support payments.
What's this got to do with health? When child support amounts are unaffordable, studies show that children don't receive support. "Right-sizing" support ensures that children have sufficient financial resources for safe housing and sufficient nutrition.
