Health & Nutrition Services

FACT, Inc. focuses on the health of the children and families enrolled in its program. The agency ensures that each family has or gets a family doctor, that each child has a physical check up as well as a dental exam every year, that each child is as up-to-date as possible on his/her immunizations, and that each child is checked daily for possible health problems. If a child is discovered to have a disability, all efforts are made to help that child and his family deal with and perhaps overcome difficulties related to the situation. Indeed, FACT helps as much as possible with any health-related situations presented by any member of the family.
Family Service Advocates (FSAs) are available to assist parents with health concerns, to help complete applications for insurance and/or birth certificates, to offer referrals to appropriate agencies for social service or other needs, or to help with transportation needs in keeping doctor and dental appointments.
