Latino Medical Program and Family Services

Support is available for Latino families who care for a child, or adult, with developmental disabilities and unique medical needs.

Bi-lingual case managers support Latino families as they learn to navigate the medical system. Translation, interpretation, and transportation to medical appointments are some of the ways that Fidelity House Human Services assists Latino families. The Latino Parent Support Group is a supportive group of parents and guardians who meet weekly, from September through June, to discuss common issues and listen to speakers on a variety of topics.
