In order to help you in the fastest way possible, you need to follow certain steps. These steps are outlined on our Families page.
Your first step is to call PerformCare, our contracted systems administrator, at 1-877-652-7624. Children are referred to FACT through PerformCare, the contracted systems administrator, which does an assessment of the child’s needs. PerformCare will initially interview the caregiver on the telephone to determine the severity of the problem. If the family requires care management assistance, a clinician will meet with the family to do a compete evaluation of needs. If the needs of the family rise to an intensive level, they will be referred to FACT. FACT will contact the family within 24 hours.
