A child who has experienced abuse or neglect often has specialized health care needs. At the Rees-Jones Center for Foster Care Excellence, we bring together experts in pediatrics, behavioral health, research and child welfare to provide trauma-informed, evidence-based care to address these needs and start the path to healing. Every day, our team works with caregivers, child welfare professionals, CASA advocates, judges, attorneys and other community partners through the promotion of best practices that meet the unique health, education and recovery needs of children and youth who may suffer from trauma due to abuse and neglect.
No matter their living situation, children and youth aged up to 18 years who have experienced foster care can get primary medical care targeted to their unique needs. And an important part of their care includes child behavior and development support, care coordination and referrals to specialists. Our goal is supporting caregivers and helping children and youth who have experienced trauma to become happy, healthy adults.
