FV OR provides assistance to families and professionals as they work together to improve outcomes for CYSHCN in Oregon. FV OR engages in such activities as individual support, information and resource sharing, educational presentations and training, and partnership with agency and family organizations. Activities are supported through partnerships and funding from CMS for development of the Oregon Family-to-Family Health Information and Education Center.
FV OR has been working with other advocacy organizations on health care reform issues in the state legislature. Efforts include participating in meetings with legislators and policy makers, as well as giving testimony on bills related to Medicaid buy-in for families, expanded health care for children, and a waiver for medically needy children. This legislative session is important for many Oregon families who lack insurance, have insurance that doesn't pay for what they need, and cannot get the supports they need to keep children in their own homes.
