The Tampa Bay region is a priority for Project LINK, and the organization strives to provide its participants with resources and services.
Project LINK’s mission is to provide equitable approaches to education, mental wellness, and healthy choices for children and their families.
Through Project LINK, individuals and their families receive support in a wide range of areas, including academic support, healthcare access, and mental health programming.
As part of our efforts to ensure children can attend a K-12 school and remain healthy, we provide immunizations, school physicals, and shot records transfers/updates for public school entry. As mental health is an important component of overall wellness and health, it was imperative that we provide a platform for emotional resiliency services for the youth in the Tampa Bay region.
In addition, parent education training and workshops are provided to be beneficial to increasing the quality of life for families.
By equipping parents with the tools and resources necessary to better support their children, both children and parents can reap the benefits.
The goal of our work is to increase the health, safety, information, and community involvement of all families.
We aim to build and strengthen families by meeting them where they are and facilitating the re-discovery of talents.
We utilize the skills already present, inject compassion, and genuine interest, and provide positive direction.
In order for a family to succeed, family members must view and serve their entire family in order to meet their daily challenges and responsibilities.
We envision a family that caters to the developmental needs of each member.
We serve over one thousand families each year through our health initiatives, care management, and empowerment programs in partnership with community partners who value humanity regardless of one's economic status.
We are not safe until we are all safe. We are not healthy until we are all healthy.
We believe that the service model provided by Project LINK aligns with the comprehensive understanding of the complex nature of the families we serve based on the family systems theory.
As Project LINK and our beloved families realize, a tree does not bear fruit on the same day it is planted.
We have seen a corresponding increase in the number of families we have served, who are successfully demonstrating life-changing achievements, enhanced self-awareness, and increased family self-sufficiency.
With over 128,000 families served county-wide, we have contributed to children becoming healthy, safe, educated, and active members of our society.
