Children's Volunteer Health Network, Inc., Healthy Happy Kids, is a faith-based 501(c)(3) organization, established in 2005 in response to Walton and Okaloosa counties’ large population of low income families who are unable to access high quality health services due to the unavailability (or inadequacy) of insurance. CVHN seeks to enhance the lives of uninsured and underinsured school-aged children by facilitating free, immediate access to medical, dental, vision and mental health services by utilizing a network of over 95 local volunteer physicians, dentists and healthcare providers. CVHN also operates the “Just for Grins” Mobile Dental Clinic that visits local elementary schools and opened the CVHN Dental Clinic in 2012.
CVHN has facilitated more than 11,000 medical, dental, vision and mental healthcare procedures since inception.
Children’s Volunteer Health Network began in 2005, when one little boy’s crooked smile touched the heart of Tricia Carlisle-Northcutt.
Tricia volunteered at an outreach program at her church, and every Tuesday, Tyler and his little brother were there “only for the cookies,” he would say. Tyler was disruptive, funny and had great leadership potential, but his jumbled mouth of teeth caused him emotional pain.
He was called “Monster Mouth” and ridiculed by other children and, in turn, became a bully. He was routinely suspended from school for fighting.
Over a period of a few months, Tricia knew that Tyler needed to be helped or he would be “a lost child.” She also believed there were many more children like Tyler who could not afford dental or medical health care. Through a lot of prayer and research, the idea for Children’s Volunteer Health Network was born.
