We are excited to announce and welcome a new legacy program, LSF Connecting Family Paths (CFP). CFP is a diversion services program in Pinellas County that is contracted through the lead community-based care agency, Eckerd Connects.
Each family served by LSF CFP will be assigned a certified child welfare case manager to provide an exceptional level of engagement, bring resources in to eliminate risk factors and prevent children from being placed in out of home care. LSF CFP is partnering with Family Enrichment Services and Sail Future to bring trauma-informed expertise to intervention services.
Family Enrichment Services provides counseling, comprehensive behavioral health assessments, post adoption support, medication management and parenting support groups.
Sail Future is a broad program also serving high risk youth through residential treatment programs that provide mental health and job training services and participate in sailing journeys. Sail Future’s strategy for LSF CFP’s diversion services will be to provide afternoon and weekend therapeutic sailing experiences with the multisystemic counselor, case manager and family to support relationship development.
LSF CFP is a vital part of our mission in building strong families and keeping children safe in their homes by providing essential intervention services to decrease the risk of abuse and neglect.
