To provide continued support for the part-time pediatrician position for the Medical Services and Advocacy Center which provides vital medical services and advocacy for some of New Jersey’s most vulnerable special needs children in foster care. This innovative Center is based on the “medical home” model of holistic care and utilizes a pro-active team approach of coordinating access to high-quality, consistent medical care for severely traumatized foster children with tragic histories of abuse and neglect. The infants, children and teenagers to be served at the Center are primarily from disadvantaged urban communities in Essex and Passaic Counties.
