 Child Assessment & Treatment Center for Health (CATCH)CATCH

CATCH provides comprehensive health, dental, developmental and mental health evaluations in a safe child-friendly environment for children aged 0-5 who are involved with Child Protective Services, any age child in foster care and those who are homeless.

Children are initially screened in a playroom, facilitating a comfort level for children and parents. CATCH staff, which includes therapists and pediatric specialists from across City departments and agencies, work together to develop a baseline for medical and dental care, early identification of developmental concerns and ongoing mental health needs.

Staff educate parents and caregivers to ensure proper follow-up care is obtained and subsequent wellness visits are scheduled.  Parents and caregivers have the opportunity to learn about their child's health and developmental needs through assessment and comprehensive follow-up.

Well-coordinated, comprehensive care that is promptly delivered can mitigate the effects of abuse or neglect and help children be less likely to experience complex physical and developmental challenges that might affect their long-term health and quality of life.
