"EMS Prevention bettered my life. They got me an apartment, doctor, scheduled for surgery, and transportation. I was in a park with no where to go until I met them. Now I am where God wants me to be." J.B.
“Mrs. Ramsey was very nice and helpful. I referred her to my friends and she helped them. You can’t find a better worker. She’s always on time for visits and a good person” E.F.
"I never heard of the EMS Prevention Program and was very reluctant to sign up. But, it has been one of the best decisions I have made. With each home visit, my case manager took the time to get to know me and understand what my needs were to be safe, secure, and healthy in my home. From everything like porch railings, smoke detectors and fans to even food and utility assistance, I received the help I needed and was connected to community resources I did not know existed." - I.T.
“Thanks to Mrs. Ramsey and EMS Prevention for all of their help through my really tough times. 8 months were really hard and they were right there checking on my son and I with food bags, applications for housing, referrals, etc. I really appreciate and love them for all of their smiling faces.” A.B.

The EMSP team cares about their clients and are dedicated to filling the gaps in care to help individuals live healthy and enjoyable lives. As a social work student, this internship was a great experience because it gives you the opportunity to learn about the intersection of physical and mental health with resource access and how to address gaps in care with community resources. I truly enjoyed my internship experience with the team because of the positive atmosphere and ability to make a difference in clients’ lives.” E.S.
“My field placement with EMS Prevention was a thorough introduction to the field of medical social work. I was given the opportunity to build my interpersonal skills, make referrals, complete biopsychosocial assessments, lead follow-up home visits, documents using proper medical office software, policy, and staff client cases with my supervisors. Leaving EMS Prevention, I feel confident and prepared to embark on my career journey of becoming a pediatric licensed clinical social worker, ensuring that minority populations receive proper and quality medical care.” A.M.
