Action Requested
Community Health Services - Accept grant funding in the amount of $21,750.00 from Health Choice Integrated Care for the MAKES SENSE program.
Brief Explanation of Need

Yavapai MAKES SENSE (Mothers Addiction & Keeping Everyone Safe) and (Substance Exposed Newborns Safe Environment) is an innovative program bringing Department of Child Safety(DCS) and Southwest Human Development’s SENSE program into Yavapai County to ensure that infants who have had intrauterine drug exposure are remaining safe and in the home.  The MAKES SENSE program will provide monitoring and supervision to some of our most vulnerable babies and families through a multidisciplinary team approach using best practices to keep infants safely in the home while parent(s) recover from addiction, while also strengthening community partnerships to decrease the overall number of babies being born substance exposed and afflicted with neonatal or fetal abstinence syndrome.
