Suicide rates and the prevalence of mental illness continue to increase. It’s time we stop asking ourselves “what if” we could have done something to help. Now is the time! Please support ICFH to help our community have continued access to services that can help prevent or reduce the impact of trauma and promote mental health and emotional well-being.
Institute for Child and Family Health, Inc. (ICFH) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. ICFH has been providing prevention and mental health services in the South Florida Community since 1945. ICFH provides high quality, vital services to thousands of children, adolescents, and young adults ages 0-21 and their families each year. ICFH is fully accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA) and Nonprofits First.
We have more than 25 programs and utilize several evidenced-based and promising practices. Our Child and Family Counseling Program is designed to support improvements in behavior, relationships and/or emotional well-being. ICFH provides counseling services to children, adolescents and families that are coping with a wide range of issues – from behavior and adjustment problems to more serious conditions of depression, anxiety, co-occurring substance use, child abuse, and other trauma-related problems. Our Substance Abuse Prevention Program focuses on educating the children about the dangers of drug use and helping them find effective strategies to reduce the risk of use and to promote a healthy and safe life style. Our Early Childhood Programs include various prevention and treatment programs for pregnant women, teenage mothers and parents of young children to help them improve their parenting skills, knowledge of early childhood development and their relationship with their children in order to help decrease negative outcomes including abuse, neglect and developmental delays in the children. In addition, our services are designed to help improve the overall functioning of the families who face complex medical, academic and/or mental health challenges. Our At-Risk Youth Programs focus on reducing delinquent behaviors by helping to strengthen the family unit, improve communication among family members, reduce risk factors for violence and delinquency and reinforce protective factors. Our Literacy and Educational Development Program/After-School Program focuses on helping to improve the academic achievement of young at-risk children and their families.
Your donation will help us further our mission of empowering the children, youth and families in our community by providing services that enhance their emotional, physical and educational well-being. Please help make the future of our community better, starting today!
