HealthySteps at Santa Cruz Community Health

HealthySteps is a voluntary program providing trauma-informed medical and behavioral support to our most vulnerable children (ages 0-5), and their families.

Through a series of developmental and social-emotional screenings, our team works with all Santa Cruz Community Health Center care teams to support the child and family as a whole, to identify preventative care and child development support plans.

Our team Specialists also provide family-centered services to higher-risk patients, depending on age at the time of entry to the program, to support and promote long-term health and well-being.

Talk to your Primary Care Provider for more information.

Services Include:

  • Referrals to additional wrap-around care services
  • Access to critical provisions such as housing referrals, diapers, and substance use disorder support
  • A child development support line (coming soon) for parents and guardians
  • Positive parenting guidance
  • Early learning resources
  • Food insecurity
  • and more
