Program areas at CHILDREN'S Health Fund

Childrens Health Fund (CHF) has seen steady annualized growth through expanding National Network clinical programs, adding innovative programming, reaching more students through Healthy & Ready to Learn (HRL), and making sure the voices of children living in poverty are heard by the nations lawmakers. In calendar year 2019, CHF reached 99,820 beneficiaries with 433,035 clinical and community health education encounters (+36% from 2018) in 15 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. National Network Each program brings comprehensive care - medical, mental health, case management, nutrition services, chronic disease management, womens health, and much more - to low-income, at-risk families via mobile clinics and fixed-site health centers. All programs are affiliated with an academic medical center or a Federally Qualified Health Center, ensuring patient access to medical specialists and clinical oversight. Additionally, each CHF program establishes relationships with social service providers (private and public) in their local communities to help meet its patients' complex needs. In 2019, CHF established a new partnership with the Henry J. Austin Health Center, a Federally Qualified Health Center in Trenton, New Jersey; and added two new mobile medical clinics to the network in Miami and New York City.
CHF has always worked to protect and expand children's access to quality care, and continues to monitor and respond to health reform implementation and the impact on kids. The 2019 DC Spring Conference was held in April, welcoming clinical and program leaders representing the CHF National Network to a robust schedule of interactive information and training sessions with representatives of some of the nations foremost health policy and advocacy organizations. A day of intense workshops was followed by a record number (80) of Capitol Hill congressional visits in which CHF medical and program leadership gave full voice to CHFs agenda on the need to ensure and protect child health coverage and access to comprehensive health services.
In 2014, CHF launched Healthy and Ready to Learn (HRL) to address health issues that impact learning in New York City. HRL addresses needs rooted in social, racial, and economic inequities by empowering school staff and families to create trauma-sensitive environments. Through collaboration, mentoring, and resources, families and educators establish healthy relationships with students, a critical component of trauma-sensitivity. In 2017, HRL expanded to include technical assistance, city-wide training, and an online resource center (hrl.nyc). In 2019, HRL added a Trauma-Sensitive Environment component: With new research and awareness of the prevalence of "adverse childhood experiences"/traumatic events that impact children, especially those living in poverty, a three-tiered approach to addressing childrens need for support is imperative. An increased focus on students in transitional housing and immigrant children was rolled out in June 2019. We are also responding to the growing demand for professional training in the area of trauma sensitive practices.
