Family/Peer Resource Specialist Program

Mission

The Family and Peer Resource Specialist Program brings the perspective of parents, youth, and consumers into policy development and medical home implementation. Resource Specialists strengthen CFHE’s capacity to deliver effective services, to address critical health issues, and to involve the community in the discussion that leads to effective program planning for the State’s disabled and culturally diverse populations. In addition, the program assists consumers in accessing community resources such as specialty care, independent living, education, employment, and vocational training.
