connecting children & families with care

The Bay City, Palacios, Tidehaven, Van Vleck, and Matagorda Independent School Districts are participating in the Community Partnership for Student Well-being.

But the primary barrier to the development of our system of school-based prevention and intervention is the lack of social worker/therapists within the schools. Our goal is to fund four licensed clinical therapists to serve the five school districts in Matagorda County. Funding will be provided through a cooperative agreement with each of the school districts that would allow the districts to hire and supervise the school-based therapists but FTHF would have access to feedback and information to evaluate the use of the funds. To accomplish this, we have set a fund-raising goal of $350,000 for 2019.

The Community Partnership for Student Well-being is a systems approach that identifies the highest risk populations, especially those children and teens who are feeling isolated and depressed, and it can be a successful approach to preventing suicide and school violence. In today’s world, with the pressures and anxieties that children and teens are experiencing on a daily basis, the From the Heart Fund feels it can make a difference. We hope that you will join us in this effort.
