Champions For Children Program

Medical Assistance through Champions for Children

The Champions for Children Program is designed to primarily assist children and families who do not meet the eligibility requirements for the TEFRA/Katie Beckett Medicaid program. The program will provide direct financial assistance and support services for Georgia's medically fragile and special needs children and their families. An Easterseals Champions for Children Coordinator will work directly with families to determine eligibility, identify service needs as described by the family, and connect them with resources and services.

Families may access services by calling the Easter Seals Georgia Coalition toll-free number: 1-866-584-3742 or by visiting 
the Easter Seals Champions for Children Program website:

A description of the Champions for Children Program, the application for services and other information is available on the site. While the $500,000 in annual funding over the next five years will be a wonderful resource for families, we recognize that all needs will not be addressed. However, the Easter Seals Georgia Coalition is committed to serving the needs of children and families to the greatest extent possible using a family-friendly approach.
