Health Home Serving Children (HHSC) is a care management program for children aged birth to twenty-one years of age. Children are eligible for services by qualifying in one the following categories: Severely Emotionally Disturbed, HIV, Complex Trauma or by having two or more qualifying medical conditions. HHSC Care Management Services are individualized, community-based care coordination to children and their families to improve the family’s ability to keep the child at home and out of residential care. Services focus on reducing emergency room visits and inpatient hospitalizations. Specially trained Care Managers experienced in working with children who have serious emotional/behavioral issues meet regularly with children and families in their homes. Staff collaborates with parents and community service providers using a strength-based model which identifies a care team for each family, and advocates for needed and appropriate services to promote the successful care of children within their homes and communities. Care Managers provide 24-hour telephonic crisis intervention services and arranges for therapeutic, educational, recreational, respite and family support services.
