The New Hampshire Partners in Health Program helps families of children with a chronic health condition that significantly impacts daily life. Partners in Health's role is to advocate, access resources, navigate systems and build capacity to manage the chronic health condition of their child.
PIH works directly with families and will assist in finding resources to meet needs as families define and prioritize their concerns and issues. Family Support Coordinators assist families to access appropriate services and resources, arrange for special needs during hospitalization and after discharge, will help with school planning and attend meetings with you. PIH also provides recreational and respite opportunities, will be your advocate, listen and respond quickly and meaningfully. Problem solving around financial concerns or just finding the information you need is an important aspect of the day-to-day work of local coordinators. Partners in Health Family Support Coordinators know the resources in New Hampshire and beyond.
PIH serves families in New Hampshire who have a child from birth to 21 with a chronic physical health condition that:
- Is certified by a physician;
- Is expected to last for 12 months or longer; and
- Affects the child's ability to function daily; and/or
- Requires frequent and intensive medical care; and
- Is not a developmental disability, mental illness, obesity, or dental condition alone.
PIH also works with other health and human service professionals to make a difference at the community level.
