Health Homes and Integrated Care
When we say we care for children holistically, we mean it. Our Health Homes and Integrated Care program staff collaborate with everyone in a child’s world—for example, her parents, teachers, and health care providers—to ensure they are working together for the child’s overall well-being. The Health Homes Program is for youth who have been diagnosed with two or more chronic conditions—such as depression and asthma—or with SED (serious emotional disturbance).
Our home visiting programs, including Youth Assertive Community Treatment (ACT), also work with young people who are at risk for psychiatric hospitalization or other high-intensity services, giving them a real chance to get the help they need while remaining with their families. Our extensive research and firsthand experience has shown us that with the right support, these children can—and do—go on to lead happy, healthy, and fulfilling lives.
