This program seeks to improve the mental well-being of children and families in Miami-Dade through three initiatives. The first will provide education to children, youth and adults community-wide; another will serve Kristi House child clients and their caregivers; and the third will target service providers, particularly those who work with children and youth. The program builds upon Kristi House’s history of child safety prevention education in the community and training for other providers in evidence-based practices.
