Children’s Integrated Services Specialized Child Care
CIS brings parents and professionals together to identify areas where your child may need additional support, including specialized child care. Specialized child care is for children in protective services, children with special health needs, and families experiencing significant stress in areas such as shelter, safety, emotional stability, substance abuse, and children’s behaviors. The CIS Child Care Coordinator works with the family and the child care provider to ensure that the child’s needs are being met.
