Funding will improve developmental outcomes among children ages 0-5.
The Jessie Trice Community Health System recently announced receipt of an award from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).
This award provides funding to improve developmental outcomes among children ages 0-5 through increased screenings and follow-up services. JTCHS is the only HRSA-funded health center in South Florida to receive this award.
"We are absolutely thrilled to receive this honor,” says Annie Neasman, President and CEO of JTCHS. “These funds will be used to strengthen and expand the availability of early childhood services that are vital for reducing gaps in school readiness and improving children’s ability to succeed.”
