The majority of children and families we help come to us through referring governmental agencies or community resources including: the Florida Department of Children and Families, Family Support Services, Department of Juvenile Justice, City of Jacksonville, Jacksonville Children’s Commission, and United Way. In coordination with these agencies, Daniel assists children and families that qualify for Medicaid to determine the level of care needed, and then guide them through the process of obtaining the referral and health care funding required to initiate care.

Outcomes for children improve when all in the community are plugged in and connected together to a local grid of resources. By making a stronger and more reliable network, opportunities expand for all children. Those with severe emotional problems sometimes need extra resources to help keep them on track. In response to these needs, the Jacksonville System of Care Initiative under The Partnership for Child Health, has engaged with at-risk youth through a four-year, $1.2 million Criminal Justice Reinvestment Grant that helps evaluate and treat those in the juvenile justice system who struggle with serious emotional disturbances.
