WASHINGTON, DC – The Root Cause Coalition welcomed Credit Adjustments, Inc. (CAI) as its newest member, bringing the Coalition’s total membership to 53 organizations.
An industry leader specializing in health care and higher education accounts receivable management, CAI follows the motto: Delivering Respect. Collecting Results. One of only 11 small businesses nationally, CAI was awarded the contract with the Department of Education to assist in the recovery of student loan debt. As a faith-based company, CAI is concerned about social issues in the communities they serve and invests in programs that help transform lives. Headquartered in Defiance, OH, CAI has more than 300 employees with additional offices in Toledo, OH, and Manchester, NH.
“The Root Cause Coalition welcomes Credit Adjustments into our membership. We have argued from the outset that we cannot achieve health equity in America without a broad commitment by the private sector to achieving our shared goals,” said Barbara Petee, Executive Director of The Root Cause Coalition. “Through its laudable efforts to lift up underserved communities in Toledo and throughout its service areas, CAI provides a model for businesses seeking to play a part in resolving social inequities.”
“We feel that it is part of our responsibility to invest in our communities, especially in programs that address the social determinants of health,” said Michael Osborne, Chairman of the Board, CAI. “We have seen first-hand the positive results of programs that improve the health and well-being of people in the community. That has led us to partner with like-minded organizations. Becoming a member of The Root Cause Coalition is one more positive step towards further collaboration and hopefully will encourage additional companies in the private-sector to join us.”
CAI becomes the tenth organization to join the Coalition in 2018, following the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Second Harvest Heartland, Local Initiatives Support Corporation, the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation, the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities, Fairview Health Services, Aetna, the Center for Population Health at Cheshire Medical Center, and Enterprise Community Partners.
