Miami Bridge Youth & Family Services has received a $20,000 Primerica Foundation grant in support of its non-residential, family crisis intervention counseling program.
Miami Bridge’s First Stop for Families Program works with approximately 400 youth and their families each year. Funded by the Florida Network Youth & Family Services, Inc, through the State of Florida Department of Juvenile Justice, along with the United Way and local foundations, this program is designed to provide services to help families stay together. It diverts children from having to utilize emergency shelter services by providing short-term family crisis intervention assistance. The organization’s seasoned social work staff understands the frustrations that drive wedges between children and families.
The Primerica Foundation is the charitable arm of Primerica, Inc., the Georgia-based financial services company. The Primerica Foundation gives funding support to programs that meet critical needs of families, and in turn, build stronger communities. Since its establishment in 2010, the Foundation has positively impacted the lives of tens of thousands of individuals.
