Our health outreach services offer access to free or low-cost health care and community resources to improve the health and well-being of children and families: Medi-Cal Program and Emergency Medi-Cal (Open throughout the year), assistance with renewals and requested forms by the eligibility worker, Covered California (special enrollment), healthy kids (0-5) who are not eligible for Medi-Cal and/or Covered California, Safety Net referrals.
The Alliance’s primary objective is to provide stability to foster children and those at risk of entering foster care by helping them obtain healthcare, educational services and financial support so that more of them reach permanency through adoption, legal guardianship or by returning safely to their biological families. For those youth who do age out of the system without a family, we have built a core program designed to give this population the tools and guidance they need to live independently.
