Our greatest accomplishment last year
FES entered into a partnership with Lutheran Services Florida to provide counseling for families whose children were at high risk of removal. The Connecting Family Paths program began, and in that first six months our clinical team provided counseling services to 161 families. We found a way to not only grow our revenue during a pandemic, but more importantly grow our impact.
