Compass Health Network and LCCSF Continue to Serve Lafayette County Children
Because of the continued generosity of the Lafayette County Children's Services Fund , Compass Health Network will continue to provide school-based therapy services in most of Lafayette County.

The program, in its 12th year, allows four clinicians to provide therapy and consultation services to five Lafayette County school districts: Concordia, Santa Fe, Lexington, Higginsville, and Wellington-Napoleon.

Along with the ability to bill Medicaid in the schools, this charitable funding allows every child in these districts the opportunity to benefit from treatment services.
