As the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects continue to affect Wisconsin individuals and families, we want to remind our partners Well Badger is here and ready to assist families. Several services and resources are available to help people navigate the questions and challenges they might have related to healthcare, urgent needs, mental health, and more.

Those services include:

  • 1:1 Information, Navigation, and Referrals: we connect families with important services such as COVID-19 testing sites, pandemic unemployment assistance, energy assistance, health insurance, food assistance, and more. There are a variety of ways to connect with our Specialists (phone, text, email, live chat or web form on our website, and Facebook Messenger). We take the time to listen to a person's unique situation and identify programs and services to meet their needs.
  • Well-Badger-Link: a text and email opt-in program where families can get updates on COVID-19-related resources and services.
  • COVID-19 Resource Hub: an aggregate of "urgent needs" resources such as food and financial assistance, mental health needs, housing, unemployment issues, and more.

August was our busiest month on record with an increase in COVID-19 and electronic (email, texting, and Facebook) cases. Wisconsin residents continue to need assistance navigating the programs and resources right for them, and the variety of ways to connect and our focus on COVID-19 means more people are finding that help.
