Care Management links, supports and oversees access to community services a child and family may need to improve overall health. Your family works with a single care coordinator who brings together the best quality services needed to build a brighter future for your child. We facilitate communication between you, medical staff and social workers assisting in navigating the healthcare and human service maze. We provide compassionate and individualized care for your family while combining all your services into one clear and simple plan. Your care coordinator is your family’s constant ally in your efforts to achieve lasting wellbeing, prevent health crises and pave the way for success.

What is a Health Home?
A Care Coordinator will oversee and provide access to all of the services an individual needs to assure that they receive everything necessary to stay healthy, out of the emergency room and out of the hospital.
Health Home services are provided through a network of organizations – providers, health plans and community-based organizations. When all the services are considered collectively, they become a virtual “Health Home.”
