Holding hands, supporting each other

Behavioral health support

FamiliesFirst Network is an affiliate of LifeView Group. As a comprehensive human services organization, we can bridge gaps unlike any other agency. Substance misuse and mental health issues can potentially overlap into child abuse, abandonment and neglect. That’s where our child welfare teams at FamiliesFirst Network can step in to help ensure the safety of children while our Lakeview Center behavioral health care teams work with parents to receive recovery services.

FamiliesFirst Network also serves foster children with special needs, which are addressed by our specialized behavioral health care teams.

Lakeview Center’s behavioral health services coupled with FamiliesFirst Network’s child welfare support are able to lean on each other as we develop innovative solutions in serving Gulf Coast families.
