What Is Healthy Communities?
Healthy Communities is a community-based outreach program designed to help families get the health care they need. The program is focused on improving health among children, youth age 20 and under, and pregnant women.
The Healthy Communities program is funded through the State of Colorado’s Department of Healthcare Policy and Financing (HCPF).
Through this program, Family Health Coordinators connect families with local services and health care plans to get treatment for medical, dental, vision, mental health, and developmental needs.
