Parents making connections.

We offer a wide range of programs and services to meet the needs of families who have children with physical and behavioral health concerns. We help them by providing programs, information and resources to assist in their journey. We also help by raising awareness through public outreach and media.

Families First Programs

  • Provides a Family Peer Advocate to meet with parents in their homes to coach and support parents to become more knowledgeable about their child's issues, become a better advocate for their child, and discover what parenting techniques work best with their child. The child/family does not need to be receiving Medicaid to receive this service.

  • Provides a care manager to work with the child and family to oversee the entire range of a child's health needs. The care manager will partner with the family to develop a service plan and coordinate with all other providers to ensure that a child remains healthy.

  • Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) are designed to offer support and services to children in non-institutionalized settings that enable them to remain at home and in the community. HCBS provides a family-driven, youth guided, culturally and linguistically appropraite system of care which accounts for the strengths, preferences, and needs, as well as the desired outcome of the individual. Services are individualized to meet the health, developmental and/or behavioral health needs of each youth.

    HCBS are intended to be provided to a child and family in their home and/or the community. The array of services is intended to assist children in being successful at home, in school, and in their other natural environments to help maintain them in their community and avoid higher levels of care and out of home placements.

  • Children and Family Treatment and Support Services (CFTSS) are intended to better meet children's needs, expand access to clinical treatment services, and provide a greater array of approaches for rehabilitative interventions. Any child who is Medicaid eligible and is identified as having a health or behavioral health need can access services with greater flexibility and choice.
