Families with Children
Maintaining strong, stable and healthy families is the key to building a better future for all Rhode Islanders. The EOHHS and the agencies under its umbrella offer many different types of health and human services programs to assist families with children in meeting this goal.
Through our RIte Care and RIte Share programs, the EOHHS is the major source of health coverage for low income families with children in Rhode Island. We also offer health care services and supports to children with disabilities and special needs through various programs.
The EOHHS departments also offer many programs to promote good health and nutrition and help families achieve financial independence. Additionally, we provide services to stabilize families and youth at risk and protect the safety and welfare of our most important asset – our children.
