Central Florida Cares Health System (CFCHS) is more than a funding source for mental health and substance misuse programs in our area – they have truly shown themselves to be actual partners to the provider agencies. Our CFCHS-sponsored programs focus primarily on two domains: 1) youth substance misuse prevention and 2) support for people experiencing homelessness in our community. Because of CFCHS’s collaboration, guidance, technical assistance and mutual commitment to the highest standards of quality, we have been able to innovate how services are delivered and reach more people with our services. Hence, we truly feel that our clients’ success stories are CFCHS’s success stories too. That feeling of partnership has continued even during the COVID-19 pandemic by means of CFCHS’s productively supportive provider meetings and the availability of abundant personal protective equipment (PPE) for providers. We are sincerely grateful to have CFCHS as our managing entity.
