Substance misuse and mental health issues can potentially overlap into child abuse, abandonment and neglect. That’s where our child welfare teams at FamiliesFirst Network can step in to help ensure the safety of children while our Lakeview Center behavioral health care teams work with the parent’s to receive recovery services. FamiliesFirst also serves foster children with special needs. As children and families’ needs expand and contract, our teams collaborate to adapt and develop innovative solutions in serving Gulf Coast families. We also serve persons with disabilities who are seeking meaningful work and independence. For those who need it, Global Connections to Employment (GCE) provides job opportunities across a diverse pool of business lines, from facilities maintenance to food services and commercial businesses to health care environments.
Because of LifeView Group, people with mental illnesses and addiction disorders can get the treatments they need, people with disabilities can find employment, and children who have experienced abuse or neglect can know safety and stability.
