Tiffanie Dorch, Director of the BronxWorks Health Benefit Programs

Tiffanie Dorch joined BronxWorks three years ago, as a Program Developer reporting directly to John Weed, Assistant Executive Director of Community Programs. In that role, Tiffanie interacted across multiple departments and gained a deep understanding of BronxWorks. Less than two years later, Tiffanie made a smooth transition to her current role as Director of Health Benefit Programs. In this role, she oversees outreach-based community programs such as the Navigator Program which assists individuals with the New York State Healthplan Marketplace. Outreach for the programs occurs anywhere and anytime the community may gather and you will often find Tiffanie and her staff at street festivals, health fairs and community board meetings. In 2019, Tiffanie's position evolved again as BronxWorks was named a pilot site for NYC Care. NYC Care is a health care access program that guarantees low-cost and no-cost services to New Yorkers who do not qualify for or cannot afford health insurance based on federal guidelines.

In addition, Tiffanie is very passionate about working on the Census this year, with BronxWorks being a Complete Count partner and her department spearheading the initiative.

Tiffanie explained, "The outcome of the census is crucial to many other BronxWorks programs. Each complete census application is the equivalent of $3,000 in federal funding. Every dollar is necessary to support the residents of the Bronx."

Originally from Yonkers, Tiffanie has strong ties to the Bronx and BronxWorks. Her neighbor, a fellow BronxWorks employee, would often talk to her about all the ways BronxWorks works with the community. Soon after, she was inspired to apply for a position at the agency. Tiffanie recently earned an MBA from Mercy College in Finance. She feels that her previous careers as a consultant and a sales representative gave her unique skill set for her current role. When not at work, Tiffanie loves to travel, meet new people and experience new places and cultures. She is planning an upcoming adventure to Europe.
