Better Family Life-Comprehensive Access to Resources, Education and Services (BFL C.A.R.E.S.) program implements services that reduce youth risk, increase opportunities to succeed, and promote positive youth development. Programming is provided in schools and in-home and is available to child and youth in kindergarten through 12th grade, as well as the family. Services use interactive, student-centered, medically accurate, age appropriate, evidence-based prevention program (EB-PP) curricula while also incorporating case management and individual counseling to reach, teach, and meet students where they are as they navigate towards success. The programming is culturally and linguistically appropriate and taught from a trauma-informed (TI) approach reinforcing positive youth development (PYD).
