Real-Time Help For Families

For families feeling overwhelmed, finding and accessing the right services can be a challenge. That’s why the Family Services Initiative was created: to provide real-time help for struggling families that all starts with a call to 2-1-1.

    Partner agencies working collectively on initiative

The Family Services Initiative is a collective partnership of agencies and a proven prevention model that works. Trained professionals work in partnership with families to help overcome their challenges. Plus, resources are available for basic need items like food, kids’ beds/bedding, transportation, and rent/utility assistance. Four agencies are at the core of the initiative: 2-1-1 Tampa Bay Cares, Personal Enrichment through Mental Health Services (PEMHS), Central Florida Behavioral Health Network, and the Juvenile Welfare Board. In addition, multiple community partners access and contribute to the system.
