Mission Statement

Families Count is committed to helping children grow physically and emotionally by providing families with quality services that prevent, diagnose and treat child abuse and neglect.

Description

Families Count Programs are designed to support families and make a difference in the lives of abused and neglected children. The programs are divided in three divisions of services, Prevention, Intervention and Forensic. Prevention Service Programs are KidCare, Healthy Families, and Family Place on the Square. The KidCare Program provides enrollment and advocacy in Healthy Kids of Florida for medically uninsured or under-insured children in our communities. Healthy Families program is a child abuse and neglect prevention program that works with pregnant women and their children up to the age of five. Families Count Child Advocates also known as the Rapid Response Program is a prevention and intervention program. Rapid Response provides classroom and teacher in-service presentations on topics such as Child Abuse and violence issues. Family Place on the Square is county based family resource centers that are designed to help working families in crises. Intervention Services include the Family Support Team Program and Children's Medical Foster Care. The Family Support Team is an effective home visiting program, which works with families after an abuse hotline report to stop child abuse and promote a safe, healthy family environment. Children's Medical Foster Care consists of medical foster parents who provide transitional homes for medically-complex children, while providing care for their emotional, physical and medical needs. The Forensic Service Programs are the Child Protection Team and Families Count Case Advocates. The Child Protection Team is a multi-disciplinary team of doctors, nurses, advocates and social workers. The Child Protection Team is available 24/7 to interview, assess and diagnose child abuse in Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton Counties. The Families Count Case Advocates provide rapid-response services, including crisis intervention, coordinated care and emergency assistance for victims of violence.

Would you recommend Families Count?

by John K. from Pensacola, FL (December 16, 2008)
This appears to be a poorly run organization. There is a huge turnover and the current employees have very low morale.The executive director and her management team ax people regularly if they oppose them in any way and they have poor relations with other community providers. They have serious financial problems due to apparent poor fiscal managment.Until they can get better management I would not recommend volunteering or working for this organization.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
