The Baltimore County Family Navigator service is a free service offered to parents and caregivers of children with intensive needs related to behavioral/mental health or developmental disabilities. Family Navigators are experienced parents or caregivers of special needs children who have navigated through systems of care on behalf of their children.
Family Navigator Services offer support and advocacy, provide guidance in completing forms and applications, and assist with identifying and accessing services. A Family Navigator can help you identify your strengths and challenges, find resources, and develop a plan of action.
Raising a child with intensive needs can be frustrating, exhausting, and full of rewards. Families who have private health insurance, public health insurance, or no health insurance are encouraged to take advantage of this free service funded by The Governor’s Office for Children through the Baltimore County Local Management Board and Catholic Charities Child and Family Services.
