Hennepin County social workers, nurses and financial workers can assist families in determining if they are eligible for medical assistance, grants and other supportive services to provide the best care possible for their disabled child. We partner with schools, medical providers community resources, and advocacy groups to ensure that families receive appropriate supports to address their child’s needs.
Our goal is to help families care for their children in the community and plan for continuing supports for the disabled child as they grow. A social worker may be assigned to continue to assist families throughout the child’s development and to offer guidance and additional services as needed.
