GHS has several services to assist with those who have been impacted by the Flint Water Crisis.
Family Supports Coordination assists with coordinating services for those affected by the Water Crisis. We can help you and your family connect to the services you need such as medical care, lead testing and risk assessments, educational programs, mental health care, benefit enrollment, nutrition and food support, transportation assistance, housing assistance, childcare, personal and family resistance coaching, and more.
Interested in our Mobile Unit's schedule and where you can find it in the community? The schedule is listed to the right via our Facebook page under the events tab. You can also follow our Facebook page for regular updates.
Our Lead Safe Home Program assists qualified residents with free home repairs and outside property areas that are found to be at risk for lead exposure. Residents must be eligible for Medicaid, have a child up to the age of 19 and/or a pregnant female living in the home.
Our Healthy Aging Program addresses the needs of Genesee County Seniors (age 55 and older) with an integrated system of physical health, behavioral health, and aging supports. It’s geared toward those who may be having difficulty with health concerns; stress; emotional issues; loss; and/or life changes including independence, home changes, or health changes. These services are free of charge and open to all seniors regardless of income.

GHS has also begun our Neurodevelopmental Center of Excellence (NCE). In light of the Flint water crisis, neuropsychological assessment services are now available to assist caregivers, educators and medical/psychiatric providers in supporting children who may have suffered damage as a result of exposure to lead.
