The High Risk Infant Interagency Council of San Francisco (HRIIC) is a county-wide parent/professional collaborative concerned with infants and young children (ages birth through five) with special health care needs (CSHCN), and their families.

Children with Special Health Care Needs have been defined by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) as “those who have or are at increased risk for a chronic physical, developmental, behavioral, or emotional condition and also require health and related services of a type or amount beyond that required by children generally.”

HRIIC works to ensure that these children in San Francisco receive family-centered services in a timely and coordinated manner through interagency collaboration.

We hope that the information on this website will help families of children with special health care needs in San Francisco, and the professionals who serve them, to better understand the often complex process of service delivery, so that infants and young children with special needs can have the best possible opportunities to participate in family and community life.

We welcome your participation. Please contact us with any questions or comments HRIIC’s services, including this website, are made possible through First Five San Francisco.
