The Resource Place is a website that families of children and youth with special health care needs and providers can use to find services and supports. It was developed in response to families reporting the need for up-to-date, easy to access information about resources, programs, services and supports. The focus is on Massachusetts, but some national resources and resources from other states are also included.
