About Us

Central Florida Cares Health System, Inc. (CFCHS) is a not-for-profit organization contracted by the Department of Children and Families to oversee state-funded mental health and substance abuse treatment services in Circuits 9 and 18 (Brevard, Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties). As a managing entity we are a behavioral health administrative and management organization, and our primary focus is to promote a comprehensive, seamless system of recovery and resiliency to those individuals in our community who are in need of these services.

The entire CFCHS staff is dedicated to serving those in need of mental health and/or substance abuse services by providing the best possible information, options, and resources available. Furthermore, it is our primary objective to ensure that all individuals are given their “first step towards success” by putting the person served “first” in all aspects of our operation. CFCHS contracts with several professional agencies that will provide the services and support needed by both adults and children in our community. A list of those agencies and their available programs can be found on the “Find a Provider in your Community” tab to your left. It is our aim to provide you with information as quickly and accurately as possible in order for you to begin those “first steps” successfully.
