MAFS assists the community to apply for benefits like Medicare, Medicaid, social security, access to care, Citizenship, immigration, transportation, childcare, SSI prescription drug, SNAP (Food Stamp), LIHEAP(heat and electricity), SHIP (Senior Health Insurance Program) On June 27th MAFS staff had a public benefits seminar at our Carol Stream office at 954 W. Army Trail Road, Carol Stream, IL 60188. Since our Carol Stream location has a large Asian population, we decided to have the seminar at this location. We wanted to reach out to as many people as possible to render our services. Our MAFS staff Tarinda McGee, Shane Solanki, Urvashi Bhatt, Eugenie Favre, Kiran Patel, and Jasbir Mann were present to carry out this outreach program. It was catered mainly to help the underserved community with individualized one on one consultations. We helped the community members who came for assistance by helping them fill out applications for immigration. We made them aware of facts about immigration that they were previously uninformed. We also helped with SNAP and Medicaid. The community members present were very happy with the services provided that day. This seminar was very successful as we were able to serve them with the help they needed.
