Special Feature: An Interview with Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children Program Grantees
The Children’s Medical Services and Advocacy Center (The Center) is a Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children Program (HTPCP), which provides high quality, comprehensive health care to children in foster care programs. Administered through Children’s Aid and Family Services, the Center integrates a medical home model of care within a child welfare organization.

The Center ensures coordinated and comprehensive team-based care for the children it serves. By hosting weekly medical rounds with the behavioral/mental health team (Licensed clinical social workers and a psychiatrist) and the primary care team, the Center is able to successfully integrate these services into the medical home. In a recent interview with the National Center for Medical Home Implementation, Anne Armstrong-Coben, MD, FAAP, medical director at the Center stated that integrated “behavioral/mental health services with primary care provides a holistic, team approach, which improves health outcomes.”

Since the Center’s HTPCP started in 2012, the Center has seen a significant increase in referrals to its services from Children’s Aid and Family Services. The Center has built powerful relationships within the community, including those with schools and other caregivers, to ensure a true medical home neighborhood for the children they serve.
