EAGLE, Colo. Eagle County Health & Human Services today introduced a breakthrough Web solution for individuals, families and agencies involved with children and youths ages 0-18. Network of Care for Children & Family Services is a “No Wrong Door” online information place that provides critical information, communication and advocacy tools with a single point of entry. This site can greatly assist families in finding the best services for their children, from insurance coverage to local services. It’s a better way to connect the community that cares for our children.

To empower children, their families and service providers, the Network of Care for Children & Family Services helps people find the right service at the right time, educate themselves about their issues, understand current policy initiatives and advocate directly to elected officials, and better manage their children’s activities, interactions and important records.

The Network of Care for Children & Family Services provides a comprehensive Service Directory of the approximately 70 service providers in Eagle County, putting people in touch with the right services at the right time. Network of Care also provides easy-to-search libraries and vital information about specific disorders, pending legislation and advocacy, as well as daily news articles from around the world concerning aging and disabilities.

To increase accessibility and accommodate the Network of Care for Children & Family Services’ users, the site’s innovative technology provides near-universal access, regardless of literacy or income level, to Web-based services through a text-only version of the site and other adaptive technologies. The site is fully ADA-compliant. Network of Care for Children & Family Services also is available in multiple languages.

Service providers can share challenges and ideas, as well as create powerful new mechanisms to better serve seniors, by embracing Network of Care for Children & Family Services’ communication tools such as message boards and community calendars. Service providers can even build their own free Web sites in the For Providers section.
