The evidence based C.A.R.E.S. Model was developed at Brevard CARES, using high fidelity Wraparound Care Coordination, and is identified as an evidence based promising research practice by The California Evidence Based Clearinghouse. The model has a proven, effective, strength-based, and family-centered program component that safely diverts entry into the mental health, juvenile justice and child welfare system by strategically reaching families before stressors they experience lead to child abuse and neglect.
This model is now being replicated nationwide by The National Center for Innovation & Excellence. You can find out how to bring the C.A.R.E.S. Model to your community by clicking here
