VISTA Member Expands the Reach of PediPlace’s Services to Richardson Independent School District

Kendra Reams VISTA 50th TestimonialVISTA member Kendra Reams, made important connections for PediPlace, the nonprofit pediatric clinic in Lewisville, TX. Kendra made it possible for PediPlace to get in the doors of Richardson ISD, a school district where PediPlace was previously not allowed to share the information about their services.

Connections to school districts, like Richardson ISD, are very beneficial for the population of students attending Richardson, because, not only is PediPlace easily accessible due to the new clinic located in Richardson, but the services are at little or no cost for all families who are uninsured, underinsured, or who have CHIP or MEDICAID. PediPlace is a partner agency of the AmeriCorps VISTA North Texas Project.
