How We Do It

Our coalitions and partners leverage local donations for their outreach and enrollment services to bring in federal dollars that support our mission of healthcare coverage for all.  Every dollar donated turns into $1.60 to support the work of the local coalition.

CKF-IN informs statewide policy makers on healthcare issues and advocates on behalf of our coalitions and consumers for policies designed to improve healthcare access, retention and outcomes.


"Advocating Healthcare Coverage for All."

Our Vision

All Hoosiers have accessible healthcare coverage.

Our Goals

  • Become a statewide organization.

  • Strengthen existing coalitions.

Our Mission

Covering Kids and Families promotes and facilitates healthcare coverage through:

  • Building coalitions that enroll, educate, and support Hoosiers 

  • Advocating for strong and inclusive public policies.
