CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL HEALTH CARE NEEDS (CSHCN)

This free program provides support for families and providers taking care of a child who has or is at risk to have a physical, developmental, behavioral or emotional condition. Our goal is to partner with our community to give each child a chance to reach his or her fullest potential.

Support & Services

In order to facilitate coordinated care, a public health nurse can:

  • Listen to your concerns;
  • Help a family find or coordinate medical providers and a medical home;
  • Help a family or provider access local resources and/or services for the child;
  • Provide information about local community resources, including parent support organizations and community coalitions.

Eligibility


All children (birth to 18 years) who are at risk for or have a health or developmental condition, and the family needs help with accessing local resources, are eligible for coordination of care, regardless of income. Services may be offered via telephone or through limited home/community visits.
