Within Children’s Care Management, which is overseen by the New York State Department of Health, our Youth Care Coordinators provide youth and families with a variety of individualized services and community resources based on family needs. This includes educational support; social supports within the community; and linkage to primary care, dental, and mental health.
Our family-driven services are designed to empower families and individuals, promote physical and mental health, and provide behavioral health resources so youth may make positive behavioral decisions. Children’s Care Management has been rapidly growing since it started in 2016. It is currently in four counties – Oneida, Herkimer, Madison and Otsego with offices in Utica and Herkimer.

Why Consider Children’s Care Management
Our Team Approach
We embrace the Wraparound model for all of our care, services and programs. Our staff works collaboratively to develop and implement customized treatment plans for the individuals and families in our programs, and each team member contributes to our clients’ successes.
Empowerment & Support
At ICAN, we strive to empower and support individuals and families facing life challenges, by providing them with the tools to make the best decisions for themselves and their families. We assist them with succeeding in any goal they may have set, whether it be recovering from addiction, finding success in the classroom, creating a healthy home for their family as they anticipate the birth of a child, or seeking support and community resources, all while keeping families together as they process through their traumas.
Access To Resources
We connect individuals and families with critical community resources, such as access to physical and mental health providers, employment opportunities, housing options, peer support groups, and Wraparound services. We understand that access to some of these services can be difficult to attain during certain life challenges, and we are here to help individuals and families overcome this obstacle.
