Solving the Family Health Care Conundrum
Right now, it is not easy for parents to find their way through the patchwork of health and social services available to help their children. While VNA Health Group provides many of these services, they are separate programs with different sources of funding from the state, grants and philanthropy — making navigating the system complicated.
Your support of the 2020 Vision Campaign will help VNA Health Group strategically unify these services and resources to create a seamless experience for parents and clinicians.
