Benefits Data Trust is an organization headquartered in Philadelphia that helps connect people in Pennsylvania to benefits they may not have known they were qualified to receive. It also helps them navigate the process to get them. We wanted to talk about the work Benefits Data Trust is doing and also talk about some key initiaves they have going on -- one important one being working with Community Legal Services to provide help for people facing eviction. Another initiative is a partnership with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Health Plan that aims to improve the well-being of UPMC Health Plan members by helping them access critical public benefit programs. For this conversation we caught up with Trooper Sanders, the CEO of Benefits Data Trust, Rachel Garland of Community Legal Services, and Ray Prushnok, Executive Director of UPMC's Center for Social Impact.
