LEARN A LITTLE MORE ABOUT WHO WE ARE!
Since 1982 we’ve been caring for the most vulnerable populations in Tampa Bay. By integrating our child welfare, behavioral health, and homeless services, we are able to wrap our clients in the care they need and put an end to the cycle of trauma. We are pioneering treatments and services that are shaping the future of trauma-informed care and providing the best possible support to the ones who need it the most.
We have over 400 staff spread out across five counties that offer a variety of services focusing on healing and preventing trauma. We consistently develop service models specifically based on the needs we see in our community. Our innovative services have impacted the lives of over 19,000 people each year.
Our mission is to be a welcoming and compassionate provider, advocate, and partner to children, adults, and families in need of integrated healthcare, social support, safety, and hope for the future.
