Every child deserves hope.

Nurture the emotional and behavioral health of your child so they can reach their full potential mentally, physically and socially.

The Center for Children's Health, led by Cook Children's, is home to the Community-wide Children's Health Assessment & Planning Survey (CCHAPS), Community Health Outreach and Community Health Research. The center's goal is to create aligned collaborations that will allow us to make our North Texas region one of the healthiest places to raise a child.
