The Family Case Management Program helps families with a pregnant woman, infant or young child to obtain health care services or other assistance they may need to have a healthy pregnancy and to promote the infant or child’s healthy development.
Our goals are:
- To ensure that pregnant women, infants and children have a physician, and receive regular physical exams and immunizations
- To help identify and reduce or eliminate barriers to health care and community services
