Families & Youth

OCCYSHN is committed to supporting families of children and youth with special health needs. As we plan and execute our work on behalf of children and youth with special health needs, we listen to those most impacted: the family members and young people who live with these conditions every day.

Family members serve on Community Connections Network teams throughout the state through the Family Involvement Network (FIN). OCCYSHN is also forming a council of youth with special health needs who can provide hard-won wisdom to help guide our work.
