Orange County Care Coordination Collaborative for Kids: Access to Care for CSHCN

Orange County recently transitioned children served by California Children’s Services to a managed care plan under the Whole Child Model program. The grantee has received previous funding from the foundation, and has successfully improved service delivery in the county by establishing better communication, coordination, and implementation of best practices among providers of service for CSHCN. This grant will provide support for identifying and addressing barriers to care that may arise as families attempt to access care.

The Family Voices Family Engagement in Systems Assessment Tools

Family participation is essential for creating the policies and programs that shape the services children and families receive. Family Voices has created the Family Engagement in Systems Assessment Tool (FESAT) and Family Engagement in Systems (FES) Toolkit. Organizations can use these family-created tools to assess how well they engage families; improve family engagement over time; and guide the design of systems-level activities to ensure family engagement.

Application Process

The Foundation generally invites specific applications for proposals. However, unsolicited proposals for projects that contribute to achieving the program’s goals are welcome. Proposals initiated by applicants should be presented to the Foundation as a letter of inquiry. We strongly recommend that applicants carefully review our program and goals before submitting a letter of inquiry.
