What We Do

We work with families who are struggling, or at risk of losing custody of their children, through parent education and counseling services. Some divisions focus highly on the case management of foster care children in efforts to find them permanent loving homes. Our newest endeavor is the development and implementation of a Community School in Alachua County. Community Schools have a holistic approach to education, mental/physical health, and cultural needs in the area served by the school. Our organization works tirelessly to better the community we live in to make it a safe place for families to grow.
