TRAININGS, PRESENTATIONS & EDUCATION
to help you create hassle-free connections across health and human services and community agencies


Service Coordination: Accessing resources for children with complex needs
Service Coordination is probably the most complicated process we handle, because it is intended to help kids with the most complicated challenges. If you work with a child who needs help in many areas of his or her life, and needs services from multiple agencies, you might need to learn about Service Coordination.

In less than 15 minutes, you can learn what the Service Coordination Team does, and when it is appropriate to access this resource for a child, on this FREE, IMMEDIATE TRAINING VIDEO.

Also, you will find a wealth of resources in the Service Coordination section.

If you feel like you need more insights, call to have a quick conversation with our staff Service Coordination specialist, (216) 698-2875.

If your staff needs an in-person training on Service Coordination or other topics related to children and families, call (216) 698-2875.
