Each year the 51 Family-to-Family Health Information Centers (F2Fs) in each state and the District of Columbia, funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), work with families with children and youth with special health care needs (CYSCHN) to help them understand and navigate through the maze of programs and services available to help them.

In addition, F2Fs assist providers, state and federal agencies, legislators, and other stakeholders to better understand and serve CYSCHN and their families.
