Programs offered at Healthy Connections Resource Center
Basic Resource and Referral
Every client is screened for health insurance and either given referrals or assigned an appointment for enrollment assistance in a free or low cost insurance plan, if they qualify. Each client is called back to be sure they were able to access the referral that was given to them and to determine if they need additional resources or services.
Those families who have multiple needs for resources or assistance accessing social services receive personal assistance from a case manger, including help setting up attainable goals.
