What is Care Team?
Well-Being Education & Support for the Whole Family
Access to quality physical and mental health care, nutritional food, and resources to maintain healthy living, all go into a family’s well-being. At the same time, stability with employment, education and a safe physical environment gives families a solid foundation to develop their healthy habits. When children or adults in the family experience challenges in more than one of these areas, it can be difficult to stay well. The Child Health Initiative brings community partners together to support families who are experiencing multiple challenges achieve better health and well-being.
