Cornell Scott-Hill Health Corporation (CS-HHC), a private 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, requests support to continue its Title X Family Planning program that serves five cities in south central Connecticut: Ansonia, Derby, East Haven, New Haven and West Haven with a combined population of 258,983. CS-HHC’s proposed five town service area exhibits considerable variation in socioeconomic characteristics and health status, with the City of New Haven containing some of the state’s poorest, most ethnically/racially diverse, and historically underserved populations. CS-HHC provides services to all residents of the region; however, our primary target populations are the most vulnerable members of the community: people without health insurance, low income residents, and racial/ethnic minorities. CS-HHC is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) that provides Women's Health, Adult Primary Care, Pediatrics, Dental and Behavioral Health Services (mental health and substance use disorder treatment).
For the 2022-2027 performance period, CS-HHC anticipates expanding access to Title X services to 11,800 unique clients, by providing Title X services across six locations in the greater New Haven, Connecticut area: its main care site (400-428 Columbus Avenue, New Haven), Dixwell care site (226 Dixwell Avenue, New Haven), State Street care site (911 State Street, New Haven), West Haven care site (410 Campbell Avenue, West Haven), and Ansonia care site (121 Wakelee Avenue, Ansonia) and CS-HHC’s new Sargent Drive care site (150 Sargent Drive, New Haven). All six service sites will be open a minimum of five days per week between the hours of 8:30 am and 5:00 pm. CS-HHC’s main care site (400-428 Columbus Avenue, New Haven) also will offer care between 8:30 am and 12:00 pm on Saturdays in order to accommodate users who might otherwise be unavailable during weekdays.
CS-HHC will provide all required Title X services across its six proposed service sites. CS-HHC offers a broad range of family planning and related health services that are tailored to the unique needs of the individual. These include natural family planning methods which ensure breadth and variety among family planning methods offered, infertility services, and services for adolescents; breast and cervical cancer screening and prevention of STDs as well as HIV prevention education, counseling, testing, and referrals. All family planning services will be provided in accordance with current standards of medical practice, and consistent with national guidelines from organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), United States Preventive Services Taskforce (USPSTF), American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology (ASCCP), and American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG).
