Children's Volunteer Health Network, Inc.
Children's Volunteer Health Network (CVHN) works to enhance the lives of uninsured or underinsured school-aged children by facilitating free, immediate access to medical, dental and mental health care in Walton and Okaloosa counties. Serving families from Crestview, Destin, Freeport, Fort Walton Beach, DeFuniak Springs, Santa Rosa Beach and everywhere in between, CVHN exists to ensure all kids are healthy and happy by facilitating the care that children need and deserve.
CVHN has 3 main programs which provide care to local children in the community. Click the links below to learn more or CLICK HERE to contact CVHN administration for more information regarding programs and services.
All programs provide free services for children who qualify and the CVHN Dental Clinic accepts Medicaid. CVHN has facilitated more than 75,000 procedures for more than 17,000 local children. The value of services is over $5.5 million which were provided free to families in need. Unfortunately, the number of calls they receive continues to grow. Their passion is to provide hope where there is pain and ensure all kids are happy and healthy.
CVHN seeks to enhance the lives of uninsured and underinsured school-aged children by facilitating free, immediate access to medical, dental, vision and mental health services by utilizing a network of over 95 local physicians, dentists and healthcare providers. CVHN also operates the 'Just for Grins' Mobile Dental Clinic that visits local elementary schools and the CVHN Dental Clinic located in Santa Rosa Beach.
“CVHN is like a band-aid to the healthcare crisis… one band aid at a time can help a runner complete a marathon, or comfort a child’s hurt finger. It’s the small things we do today that make a difference in the lives of these kids,” says Tricia Carlisle-Northcutt, founder of CVHN.
