F2F HICs are federally funded through the United States Department of Health and Human Services Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB).
Family to Family Health Information Centers are established to provide information and assistance to Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN).
They are children who have, or are at risk for, chronic physical, developmental, behavioral or emotional conditions and who also require health and related services of a type or amount beyond that required by children generally. Examples of such conditions include: Asthma, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, Blindness, Loss of Hearing, Diabetes, Bipolar Disorder, Epilepsy, etc.
No, Georgia’s F2F services, and all Parent to Parent of Georgia services, are provided free of charge.
That’s easy! Just give us a call at 1-800-229-2038.
A coordinator will ask you some questions to understand what you need and work with you to develop your next steps.
