Family Resource Hub

A Navigator to Services for Families of Children with Special Needs

                      Happy Family

 

This Resource Guide has been developed to give families a source of information about programs and services for children with special health care needs. It contains basic descriptions of services provided, information on eligibility criteria, contact information, and web addresses.  It is intended to serve as a starting place for research of both local and national resources that will empower families with tools necessary for daily life.
