CHS advocates for funding and legislation that empowers children and families to build bridges to success.  The 2019 Legislative Session is March 5, 2019 — May 3, 2019.

2019 Legislative Priorities

CHS Advocacy Toolkit 2019 Legislative Agenda

Increase Access to Mental Health Services

We request increased funding opportunities to expand critical mental health services for children and families in Florida, including those on Medicaid. We also request policy and funding to increase access for children and families to receive comprehensive mental health care through telehealth, at school, in their homes and elsewhere in their communities.

Better Outcomes for Children – CaseAIM

We request a legislative investment in CaseAIM, an innovative technology solution that improves outcomes for children in foster care by increasing efficiency in case management.

Evidence-Based Model – Community Partnership Schools

We request continued funding for existing Community Partnership Schools and request the allocation of additional funding to expand and sustain the model to benefit Florida’s children, families and communities.

Opening doors for future leaders: Senate Page Program

Annually, nearly a dozen youth receive CHS sponsorships to participate in the highly coveted Senate Page program in the Florida Legislature. Thanks to committed senators, teens in CHS programs, including our Community Partnership Schools, can experience this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a firsthand look into the legislative process.

Teens work alongside lawmakers and have the chance to share their personal testimonies, providing legislators with unique perspectives about how decisions at the Capitol impact lives.

Since 2009, more than 75 CHS youth have experienced the Senate Page program.
