  • HCP: A Program for Children with Special Needs


    Every child is special. All children deserve attention to their health care needs. Some children have needs that are greater than most.

    HCP: A Program for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs, provides help to children with special health needs, their families and the service providers who work with them. Professionals and families work together as a team to improve the outcome for children.

    Special health care needs can be:

    • Physical, emotional or behavioral
    • Conditions that last a lifetime, or end with treatment
    • Easy to see, or not seen at all


    HCP helps the families of children with, or at risk for, such conditions as asthma, autism, cancer, cerebral palsy, cleft palate, cystic fibrosis, developmental disabilities, diabetes, kidney disease, loss of hearing or sight, sickle cell anemia, TBI and more.

    In Colorado, 15 percent of children (more than 225,000 kids), have special health care needs. So, when it comes to children and youth with special health needs, turn to HCP for information, referral, support and connection.

    If you have questions about whether your child, or a child you may know might qualify, please call 303-239-7006.

    For more information, please contact Program Coordinator Carolyn Kwerneland, PHN, at ckwernel@jeffco.us.
