Care Coordination
Help Getting Help

The Summit County Public Health Care Coordination Unit was created to help Summit County residents connect with community services that are available to them and to assist residents through the process of getting the help they need.

There is no charge for this service, and it can help individuals and families work their way through the sometimes-confusing steps toward meeting their needs.

The Care Coordination Unit is staffed with Outreach Specialists who are knowledgeable about the resources that are available in the community and can help link clients with the appropriate services by making phone calls and assisting with applications.

Please call 330-926-5660 for assistance.


Our Outreach Specialists will work to assist clients with:

  • Health care access
  • Medication assistance
  • Transportation
  • Housing
  • Counseling
  • Dental care
  • Food assistance
  • Utility assistance
  • Vision and hearing needs
