The Bridges to Health (B2H) Program is a statewide initiative designed to tailor comprehensive health care plans for children in foster care with serious emotional disturbances, developmental disabilities and medical frailties. Studies show that more than half of the children in foster care have one or more mental health disorders (i.e. post-traumatic stress disorder) and at least one chronic medical condition. Our B2H program service delivery is designed specifically for these vulnerable children and their caregivers to promote permanency and maximize functioning in their home, community, and school settings.

This revolutionary program offers 14 additional services in these key areas aimed at improving their quality of life until they are 21 years old. A unique feature of this program is that services can continue for children and families after an adoption, a time when significant support is needed to ensure that a child has successfully adapted to their permanent environment.
