Community Action Center of Northfield (CAC)

Fulfilling our neighbors' basic needs


Volunteer Profile: Steve & Joan

October 2, 2014

Joan and Steve are trained MNsure Navigators who jumped into action to help the CAC enroll those in need of healthcare when the law changed earlier this year.

Steve is retired from the computer technology industry and put his skills to use with the online MNsure enrollment system. He says, “Healthcare is an extremely important issue to us. Being a Navigator for the CAC has been rewarding because each person has had a different situation, and the people we worked with really needed the assistance they found at the CAC. People know that the CAC is the place to go.”

Joan, a retired public health nurse who has volunteered with many of the CAC’s programs, says, “The CAC is caring and extremely responsive. They see a need and respond by developing programs that are important and necessary.”
