The Arc of Illinois Family-to-Family Health Information Center works with families and professionals to assist with questions and concerns related to the health of children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) and disabilities under the age of 22. We put our extensive parental and professional experience to work to help other families access resources, communicate with medical providers, and raise children at home in their communities.

We are thrilled that K’s Medicaid was approved. Our heads are spinning with the speed at which your contacts accomplished this task. We are very grateful.– A parent
We understand how challenging healthcare and disability systems can be, which is why we focus on sharing the most thorough, up-to-date resources regarding health insurance options, government benefits, youth transition concerns, and much more. Together, we help your child to thrive in the community.
We are part of a national network of Family-to-Family centers across the United States, funded by the federal government. We are also the State-Affiliated Organization (SAO) for Family Voices, Inc. Our caring, knowledgeable staff members are parents and family members with extensive personal and professional experience in this field.
