I just wanted to take a second to note how well things have been going for the Mobile Express. I buried the lede a bit in my previous post, but the Medworks event in Cleveland was truly extraordinary. With over 100 eligibility estimates done over one weekend, there's potential for lots of benefits to go to Cleveland's low income residents. And we were just icing on the cake when you consider that hundreds of people were able to see a doctor for the first time in who knows how long.

And now word is coming out of Tiffin that since our event on July 21, Benefit Bank sites in the area have increased by 150%. Now, should anyone need help in the future, their needs will more easily be met.

Obviously there are events that don't pan out the way we'd like. And there are other events where we talk to people but we can't be sure if it will lead to more Benefit Bank sites or more enrollments. But seeing tangible results like this... it feels good.
