WHAT IS MEDICAL HOME PLUS?
Medical Home Plus (MHP) is a nonprofit organization created in 2003 that works to help children with special needs and their families find the support they need by helping parents successfully navigate the system of care and find the opportunities available to them on behalf of their children.
WHAT AREAS DOES MHP SERVE?
MHP serves families throughout Virginia. MHP has hubs in several different locations throughout the state as well as community partners in different locales; allowing communication with families throughout the Commonwealth both by phone and electronically.
WHAT CAN A FAMILY EXPECT FROM MHP?
Once families make contact, they will work with an MHP staff member who will gather more information about their individual needs. MHP will then make recommendations about what resources are available in the community, and will continue to provide guidance throughout the process. Where appropriate, MHP will provide on-site support at meetings and other professional appointments.
HOW IS MHP FUNDED? IS THERE A COST TO PARTICIPATING FAMILIES?
MHP is a nonprofit organization. It is funded through national and community grants, as well as the generosity of donors who believe in the organization’s mission. Currently, there is no cost to participating families.
WHERE IS MHP FOCUSED?
MHP focuses on medical and social/emotional supports, behavioral support, educational and Individualized Education Program (IEP) advocacy and support. Unlike other organizations offering resource coordination for families, MHP does not work with a family solely based on a single diagnosis. Many families that contact MHP are seeking a diagnosis for their child, and may need help in that area, too! MHP turns no family away regardless of their child’s diagnosis or the family’s ability to pay.
