More than 20 million children aren’t getting the necessary preventative and primary care they need to grow and thrive, causing millions of unnecessary trips to Emergency Rooms.

Health Care as a Doorway to Other Services

Children's Health Fund (CHF)’s vision of pediatric care includes addressing the multiple factors that influence a child’s well-being. We provide screening, prevention, identification and management of acute and chronic conditions, and health education.  We also view health care as a doorway into a wide range of services. Through the trust that builds between CHF and families, we become a source for help with medical and non-medical concerns. We advocate for families on insurance and housing. We foster learning skills through our reading initiatives. The CHF model of care enables young patients to thrive physically, emotionally and intellectually too.
