OUR IDENTITY  

The Family Connections partners with other community groups to reconnect students back to successful engagement with their Miami-Dade County Public School classes.

 

OUR MISSION 

Our goal is to serve parents with a child who has frequently been absent or chronically tardy to determine the underlying challenges to regular attendance and to provide any referrals and support services that are needed at no cost. All involvement between families, students, and the Family Connections staff is strictly confidential. No one at your child’s school will ever know what services were provided.
 

WHO WE SERVE 

Miami-Dade County public school students in grades K-12 and the adults who serve them.
