The Get Connected Family Resource Center is a free service for Carroll County families in learning, navigating, and managing systems of care as they become empowered advocates for their children. We provide valuable information to help children and families make informed decisions in regards to their family’s needs by providing:
  • Outreach and Referral
  • Care Coordination
  • Case Management
  • Advocacy in Schools
  • Community Support
  • Information Management
  • Family Empowerment
  • Follow-up

Families who are concerned that their child (ages 0-25) may have Mental Health Issues, Behavioral Problems, Substance Abuse History, Developmental Disabilities, Interpersonal Violence Issues, other concerns can call the Get Connected Family Resource Center and our Family Navigators will help you find the resources you need.

We have a large database of resources including information on local speech-language therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, parent support groups and information organizations, child and adult mental health providers, crisis services, psychologists and psychiatrists, trauma services, shelter services, local providers of clothing, food, household goods and other auxiliary services such as transportation, housing, clothing etc. We often can tell you what insurances they take, if their facility is handicap accessible, if they have bilingual staff etc.

Family Navigators are people who have had to “navigate” the systems of care for their own children. If they can’t provide you with the resource you need over the phone they will meet face to face with you and work with them to prioritize your needs and construct a Family Care Plan, utilizing your family’s strengths and the Get Connected Database to identify appropriate resources. Families that have children with multiple disabilities such as mental retardation, blindness, orthopedic impairment, mental health issues, substance abuse etc. are encouraged to contact our center for help locating appropriate resources.

All services are family driven; meaning that we encourage families to prioritize their own needs and choose the path of treatment options they would like to take. Services are available for families whose disabled child is in transition between child and adult service providers as well.

The Get Connected Family Resource Center is open Monday through Saturday (see hours posted under the contact us page) and is located in the Carroll Nonprofit Building in Westminster.
