Access Family Support Health Information Center is the family to family health information for the state of North Carolina.
Family-to-Family Health Information Centers (F2Fs) are family-led centers funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). There is one F2F in each state, in the District of Columbia, in five U.S. territories, and there are three F2Fs serving tribal communities. Each F2F is staffed by highly-skilled, knowledgeable family members who have first-hand experience and understanding of the challenges faced by families of CYSHCN. These uniquely qualified staff provide critical support to families caring for CYSHCN, particularly families of children with complex needs and those from diverse communities.
F2Fs also assist providers, state and federal agencies, legislators, and other stakeholders to better understand and serve CYSHCN and their families.
Access Family Support Health Information Center is a collaboration between Family Resource Center South Atlantic Family to Family Health Information Center and Family Support Network™ of the Greater Triangle, an affiliate of Family Support Network™ of North Carolina.
