The health of children is critical to their overall
development, and the goal of the Health Department is to ensure that children are up to date on immunizations, have
a current physical exam, and receive a dental examination. 

The Department helps to identify needs and concerns, and link families to an ongoing source of continuous medical care, or a “medical home”.

 
Families play the most important role in their children’s health as primary caregivers. They provide staff with important information about their child’s health and their concerns.  Program staff support families by providing them with health-focused resources, offering tokens or transportation to medical or dental visits, as needed, and paying for dental examinations and treatment for children not covered by insurance.

Families are encouraged to participate in health-related classes to
ensure that their children have follow-up care, to help them understand the importance of keeping their children at home if they have a contagious illness.
