The Oregon Care COOrdinatioN Program (CaCoon) is a community-based care coordination program for CYSHCN administered by the Oregon Center for Children and Youth with Special Health Needs (OCCYSHN) and Oregon’s Title V (CYSHCN) program. CaCoon providers help families navigate barriers and link them with supportive services. Provides are typically public health nurses and/or promatoras and receive a comprehensive orientation to public health, including the core functions of public health, working with maternal child population populations. They often come from the community they serve and have expertise about the unique issues and challenges relating to accessing services in the local community. The strength of this program is the face-to-face contact with families, and assistance with coordinating care tailored to the needs of the child and family circumstances.
