About us

We are Georgia’s
Family to Family Health Information Center (F2F HIC)

F2F HICs are federally funded through the United States Department of Health and Human Services Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB).

What is a F2F HIC?

Family to Family Health Information Centers are established to provide information and assistance to Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN).

Who are 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.

What does Georgia’s F2F HIC do?

  • We provide families of CYSHCN and the professionals that serve them, with one-on-one assistance, face to face and online training on topics related to health care.
  • We help families navigate through Georgia’s health care system.
  • We connect families to resources within their communities.
  • We help families develop skills necessary to cooperatively and effectively participate in planning and decision making on health-related issues.

Does Georgia’s F2F HIC Charge for Services?

No, Georgia’s F2F services, and all Parent to Parent of Georgia services, are provided free of charge.
