Alternative Family Services Announces New Intensive Care Coordination Program in San Mateo County

SAN MATEO, Calif. - May 6, 2024 - PRLog -- Alternative Family Services (AFS) is thrilled to announce the upcoming launch of a new major initiative, the Intensive Care Coordination (ICC) program, in San Mateo County. This initiative is set to redefine the landscape of child and youth healthcare in California through comprehensive case management services.

The ICC program is designed with a holistic approach that strongly emphasizes reunification, permanency, and empowering children and families by prioritizing their voices and choices in their care journey. This new service underscores AFS's commitment to enhancing the well-being and future of our community's youth.

Understanding ICC: A Comprehensive Service Model

Intensive Care Coordination focuses on three crucial components:
  1. Assessing Beneficiaries: Conducting thorough evaluations to understand the unique needs of each child.
  2. Planning Care: Developing tailored care plans that align with individual needs.
  3. Coordinating Services: Ensuring seamless integration of health and support services.

Eligibility and Accessibility

The ICC program is available to children and youth under 21 eligible for Medi-Cal services and meets specific medical necessity criteria. Notably, access to ICC does not require an active child welfare services case, making it accessible to a wider range of families in need.

A Mission Rooted in Coordination and Family-Centered Care

At the heart of ICC is our mission to enhance the coordinated family service system through:
  • Family-Centered Approach: This approach positions families at the core of the service model, recognizing their crucial role in their children's developmental and overall well-being.
  • Family-Professional Partnerships: Building strong collaborations between families and healthcare professionals to ensure a unified approach to care.
  • Interagency Collaboration: Utilizing the strengths and resources of various agencies to provide comprehensive and effective care.
