Praise for CCS/Whole Child Model
"The partnership between HPSM and the County's CCS Program has made it easier for our families to access community-based services. Bilingual HPSM-CCS staff have been particularly helpful to families we see with limited English proficiency."
Lee M. Sanders, MD, MPH
"The Whole Child Model addresses not just the member’s CCS condition, but all the needs of the child and family. Its success is based on the whole family’s active involvement."
"With Whole Child Model staff co-located at HPSM, families call one person when they need services, referrals or advice. This makes it easier for them to get the best quality care for their children."
