Did You Know?

Unfortunately, children in substitute care are often moved from one home to another. Along with ensuring children’s medical care, a key purpose of the HealthWorks program is to maintain a central medical file on each child with documentation of exams, screenings, immunizations, and health records. This allows children to receive ongoing and appropriate health care even if their living situations change.
