Increasing Social and Emotional Learning Access through Florida’s Community Partnership Schools
It’s tough to concentrate in school when poverty, violence, hunger, illness, mental health challenges and homelessness dominate students’ attention. Taking a holistic approach to education, the Community Partnership Schools™ model brings together high-quality academics, health care, mental health counseling, mentoring and more – right onsite at the school, providing easily accessible resources and services to students struggling with heavy burdens that may otherwise interfere with their education.
Founded in 1902, Children’s Home Society of Florida (CHS) strives to provide evidence-based and quality services to families and communities. CHS statewide serves more than 59,000 children/families annually through Early Childhood Services, Counseling & Mental Health Services, Child Welfare, Mentoring, Outreach & Job Training and Community Solutions.
