The evidence based CARES model was developed at Brevard CARES, using high fidelity Wraparound Care Coordination, and is identified as an evidence based practice by The California Evidence Based Clearinghouse. The model has proven to be an effective strength-based and family-centered program 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 and Excellence. You can find out how to bring the CARES model to your community by clicking here
