7/17/17 - A local non-profit that offers healthcare to Dodge County area residents is expanding its services. Church Health Services has assisted low income, uninsured and underinsured individuals with general health coverage for nearly a quarter century. Executive Director Thea O’Connor says they noticed a need for more dental care for kids and the plan is to expand their dental coverage to include children starting in the fall. O’Connor says they also started a program with the Beaver Dam School District where counselors identify youth who need more specialized care. The organization then sends in a therapist to give the kids one-on-one help above and beyond what school guidance counselor may offer. There is an event this Saturday to help raise funds for the group. An Evening in Ireland will take place at the Old Hickory Golf Club starting at 6pm. The fundraiser will feature Irish-inspired food and music and all proceeds will go towards the programs offered by Church Health Services. Tickets will cost $70 per couple or $40 per person.
