One Call Care Management Renews 4 year, $400,000 Commitment to Kids’ Chance of America

Kids’ Chance of America (KCOA) thrives on support from major corporate partnerships.  These partnerships provide the resources needed to meet our pledge to reach more kids with more money.  One Call Care Management (One Call), the nation’s leading provider of specialized solutions to the workers’ compensation industry, is one such partner who has recently extended their partnership commitment for an additional four years.

Chief Operating Officer Chris Watson announced One Call’s renewal of their $400,000 commitment to KCOA at the 2017 Kids’ Chance of America Annual Meeting held in Alexandria, Virginia this past May. The renewal period will begin January 2018 and extend to December 31, 2020. Along with One Call’s professional commitment to KCOA, Chris’s personal dedication to the Kids’ Chance cause is evidenced by his service as a member of the KCOA Advisory Board, a group of highly experienced corporate leaders who provide our organization with the passion and expertise to move our mission forward. While One Call and Chris’s support over the years have tremendously advanced KCOA’s ability to provide scholarships for students impacted by work-related injuries and fatalities, the partnership with KCOA has further enhanced One Call’s position as a service leader in the workers’ compensation industry and positively impacted One Call’s workplace. According to Chris, employee satisfaction has risen over the past few years due, in part, to the work they do for Kids’ Chance.

“What’s amazing to see is how the conversation changes when Kids’ Chance is injected,” Chris said. “The conversation stops being about what we do, and becomes about why we do it, which is what is so important. The focus continues to be on the kids.”
