Family System Of Care

Funded by the Juvenile Welfare Board (JWB), the Family Services Initiative (FSI) is a collaborative initiative to develop and implement a countywide system of information, support, and the delivery of wrap around services for Pinellas County children and families across economic, social, cultural, and geographic boundaries.
FSI collaborative partners consist of the Juvenile Welfare Board (JWB), 2-1-1 Tampa Bay Cares (211TBC), Central Florida Behavioral Health Network (CFBHN), Personal Enrichment through Mental Health Services (PEMHS), Pinellas County Schools, service providers, and vendors. The services provided are to assist families in regaining stability, connect to local services as appropriate, and/or assist with financial requests.
The intent is to assist at-risk families to achieve stability by providing them with a comprehensive array of services and supports, as well as coordination, system navigation, and advocacy. The goal is to encourage family resiliency, prevent entering Child Welfare system, enhance individual, family, and community resources, and firmly link families with natural community supports.
