Helping To Ensure Our Youth Are Healthy

Our Advocates help ensure that children in DCS custody get the medial attention they need.

DCS Monitoring and Advocacy

DCS Monitoring and Advocacy Program staff provides advocacy services for children who are in State custody. This program monitors health services that are prescribed for children that are in TennCare-funded placements while in the care of the Department of Children’s Services (DCS). Advocates review health services that have been prescribed and noted in the Tennessee Family and Child Tracking System (TFACTS) to ensure kids are getting the medical attention that they need.
