Health Homes

A Health Home is not a place!  It is a team of your service providers working closely with you and your caregiver to make sure you get the services you need and want in order to stay healthy.  Once you join the Heath Home you will be assigned your own Care Manager who will work with you to complete a Plan of Care to promote social, emotional, mental, and physical health and well-being for the present and the future.

Who is Eligible?

Children/ youth, ages 0-20, and their families with Active Medicaid coverage may be eligible if they have experienced physical, social and/or emotional challenges that impact upon healthy development or their ability to achieve life goals.

Hope For Youth is a member of the Collaborative for Children and Families (CCF), a Health Home made up of an extensive network of medical and behavioral health providers that have expertise in working with children and their families.
