Family Resource Center of South Florida’s Mission is the prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect through the strengthening of families. We provide integrated care for children who have entered the foster care system and their parents, licensing and oversight of foster homes, adoptions, parent education classes, mental health services and substance abuse counseling. Working collaboratively with other community and governmental agencies, we strive to ensure holistic care and support for the children and their parents. Today, the agency is a leader in child welfare, providing in-office, in-home and in-school support to help protect children and strengthen families.
Our Vision is to respectfully treat, rehabilitate and mentor troubled families through comprehensive, responsive care. Through the provision of evidence-based, dignified and confidential services provided by well-trained and committed staff, we work to break the cycle of child abuse and neglect.
Our Values are to keep families together, where appropriate, and strengthen loving ties to the family and the community.
Family Resource Center ("FRC") is a child welfare agency serving Miami-Dade County that provides a continuum of care for children who have been abused, neglected or abandoned by their parent(s). This means that we coordinate all services needed including finding a safe and appropriate housing placement, getting the children medical, dental, and mental health care, providing after-school tutoring, and any additional needs that they may have (such as clothing, school uniforms, diapers, car seat, stroller, etc.). In addition to direct services for kids, FRC also licenses and monitors foster homes, finds adoptive parents and handles all adoption paperwork, and operates a community mental health center where we provide child therapy, family therapy, substance abuse counseling, dyadic therapy (a bonding therapy between parent and infant), parenting education and supervised visitation services (for those parents who are not allowed to see their children without a third party present).
