Description We provide residential care for children, primarily sibling groups, who have been removed from their parents due to abuse, neglect, and abandonment.  We provide 24 hour supervision through a house parent model.  We provide on-site therapeutic services, ensure all dental and medical needs are met, perform case management duties, tutoring, mentoring, and meet all transportation needs for appointments and family visits.  We work with the assigned case manager to facilitate a safe transition to a permanent home, preferably their biological family if possible.

Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) At-Risk Populations
Short Term Success Short-term success with at-risk foster care children can assessed on many levels.  We have a goal of eliminating runaway episodes entirely with our older teens with runaway histories.  We assess success with our younger children by completing potty training, increasing reading levels, and decreasing disruptive behaviors
Long Term Success Through collaboration with foster care case management agencies, we desire to shorten lengths of stay for our children to 6 months or less.  We desire to have 75% of children discharged to a permanent home, preferably a family member.
Program Success Monitoring We track all runaway episodes through incident reporting.  We work with the schools to track reading levels.  We using anecdotal reporting from our house parents who provide written reports to program management on a weekly basis.
Program Success Examples In the month of January, we had 2 siblings who improved their school attendance and performance to the point that they graduated from their alternative school placement and we placed back in their regular school.  This was done with close monitoring and assistance by our staff and tutors.  Their school success can also be attributed to their continued counseling provided by our on-site therapist.
Description In June 2014, we opened up our Springboard Program.  This program is designed for young adults transitioning into full independence.  These clients may be participation in the Extended Foster Care program or other youth from the general community who may be in need of housing and support through the ages of 18-22.  Our Springboard program has 6 fully furnished 1br duplexes in central Sarasota.  In addition to affordable housing, the client will also receive mentoring, tutoring, counseling, and real-word life skills training.
