ABLT is Expanding Support to New York’s  Children, Youth and Families

ABLT is pleased to partner with The Collaborative for Children & Families, Inc (CCF), the largest lead Health Home designated to serve Children ages 0-21.


Doing it alone can feel nearly impossible!

ABLT supports and assists families to connect them to all the resources they are entitled to and need so that they can remain healthy, safe in their homes and communities.


Every parent can use a little help but having a child with serious medical, emotional, developmental, or behavioral challenges requires even more assistance and support.


ABLT will help navigate the multiple systems of care to support individuals and their families by offering them help with some of the following:

  1. Obtaining food stamps, Section 8 housing, and other state entitlements.

  2. Advocating for children, youth, and families who need help with their multiple healthcare needs.

  3. Focusing on the strengths of the individual

  4. Helping schedule appointments and arrange transportation.

  5. Connecting family to free community resources.

  6. Communicating with other service providers to break down language barriers.

  7. Supports individual through difficult activities of daily living.

  8. Help transitioning individuals who are returning to live at home.

  9. Offer a holistic approach that includes the whole family.

  10. Bringing multiple service providers to the table to help children and young people with various health and mental health needs thrive and grow.

A Comprehensive Approach to Health

Being healthy is about more than physical health. Children and teens need a host of supports – a healthy diet, a safe home, an appropriate educational setting – to truly be healthy. Our Care Management services, make certain all those needs are met. We help qualifying Medicaid-eligible families & individuals to make sure they receive a whole range of care and services.

Our Care Managers are skilled and trained to communicate and share information in ways that are meaningful to our clients, sometimes acting as translators. Our services also ensure care during transitions from inpatient to other settings and promote ongoing medical and behavioral care to prevent crisis. Ultimately, we focus on securing the long-term success for every child and his/her family.
