ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Parents of children with special health care needs can often be confused by a maze of expensive care options.  Tuesday night, they got information on the different kinds of support available to them.

Easter Seals teamed up with "Parent to Parent of Georgia" to host a community forum about a new health care financing options called "Champions for Children."

It's Easter Seals' newest program, and it provides direct financial assistance to families to pay for things not covered by insurance.

Family and Respite Manager Nicki Wilson said she hopes the forum could help "to raise awareness of what non-profits are doing in the state of Georgia.  So parent to parent is a resource and referral agency, so every person who applies or inquires about "Champions for Children," is also referred to "Parent to Parent" for more information about services in their area."

Tuesday night's forum was the first of five meetings. 

For more information on the programs, you can call Easter Seals at 1-(800)-365-4583.
