Family Voices Indiana Awarded Grant to Continue as the Family to Family Health Information Center


Family Voices Indiana is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a grant to continue as the Family to Family Health Information Center for Indiana. The grant is administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Division of Services for Children with Special Health Needs. 
Family-to-Family Health Information Centers (F2F HICs) are family-staffed organizations that assist families of children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) and the professionals who serve them. F2F HICs provide support, information, resources, and training around health issues.
F2F HICs are uniquely able to help families because they are staffed by family members who have first-hand experience navigating the maze of health care services and programs for CYSHCN.  This intimate understanding of the issues that families face make F2F staff exceptionally qualified to help families navigate health systems and make informed decisions. Some F2F HICs are independent nonprofits; others are part of collaborative nonprofit organizations or state agencies. All F2F HICs have a strong commitment to and expertise about CYSHCN.

Do you have a child with special health care needs and/or a disability?  Do you support or teach a child with exceptional needs?

DO YOU NEED HELP WITH:
FIRST STEPS? SPECIAL EDUCATION?  MEDICAID? MEDICAID WAIVERS?  RESPITE? HEALTH CARE FUNDING?  HEALTH CARE SERVICES?
