As of July 1, 2019, Citrus Family Care Network (Citrus FCN) is the Community Based Care (CBC) Lead Agency for child welfare services in Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties.
The Florida Department of Children and Families contracts with CBC Lead Agencies across the state to provide child welfare services in their local communities for children who have been abused, neglected and/or abandoned.
Citrus FCN is a division of Citrus Health Network, a non-profit Federally Qualified Health Center that has been providing services to children in child welfare for more than 27 years.
Citrus Health Network, Inc. was founded in 1979 as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) community mental health center dedicated to serving mentally ill individuals and their families. Citrus continues to provide services to adults and children across the spectrum of mental and behavioral health needs, and is one of the largest mental and behavioral health providers in South Florida. In 2004, Citrus received a Section 330 (e) grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and became a Federally Qualified Health Center, expanding its services to include care for primary health in addition to behavioral health. Citrus takes a total wellness approach with each client, treating the body and mind. This approach to health care addresses the whole person by integrating behavioral health services and primary care and coordinating care across a broad range of health services and community-based programs.
