TennCare Shelter Enrollment Project Regional Trainings

The National Health Care for the Homeless Council is hosting three regional training sessions for shelter providers working with youth and families this year.

These informative trainings are designed to help your program staff become more familiar with TennCare, and opportunities to support the health needs of children experiencing homelessness.

Our 2022-2023 Regional Training Sessions will focus on educating shelter staff and outreach workers on the TennCare Updates, the importance of TennCare Kids exams and TennCare Kids benefits, and to broaden the scope of resources that are available to shelter children by participating speakers from community programs that will encourage information sharing and networking opportunities.

These offered 1hour trainings are virtual, FREE, and open to all.
