UPLIFT Service Partnership
UPLIFT Service Partnership provides care coordination, comprehensive case management and wraparound services to youth and families in Little Haiti, West Little River, North Miami and North Miami Beach. The program targets at-risk children who are experiencing truancy, poor school performance, disruptive behavior, child maltreatment or family violence. Services include, but are not limited to, emergency assistance, access to safety-net benefits, afterschool programs, individual and group counselling, homelessness prevention, anger management and workforce development.
The program partners with 39 schools throughout the service area, the Department of Children and Families and other community based organizations to identify and refer students to the place-based partnership. Eligible families are assessed and provided a care plan to address the many needs of the household. Care coordination and regular follow-ups are an integral part of the process to ensure a continuum of care.
