Trauma Care

Community Partners of South Florida (CP) offers immediate assessment, crisis support, and therapeutic services to children recently removed from their homes and placed in licensed foster care. Our Trauma Care Program works in partnership with ChildNet, which is the community-based care agency contracted by the Florida Department of Children and Families to provide dependency case management oversight.

The CP Trauma Care team provides on-call availability Monday-Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. to children served by ChildNet's Intake and Placement Services (SafePlace). The CP Trauma Care Program provides a fast track to therapeutic and targeted case management services, eliminating the need for the Dependency Case Manager to make a referral to a provider after the case is assigned to them. 

Children are referred exclusively to the trauma care program through the intake and placement department of The Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF).
