Breakthrough is a robust navigation and care coordination model that is rooted in sound assessment, links families to evidence-based supports, and is augmented by trusting relationships between families and our Breakthrough team. Breakthrough families are identified when children present with significant mental health needs. Once the family joins the program, they are paired with a Family Support Navigator a person with lived experience who partners with families to ensure that they are able to link to appropriate services and community supports.

Breakthrough partners closely with Federation of Families of Families, which connects the kids and families with support groups and other resources that the family will benefit from long after their time with Breakthrough has ended. The Navigators serve as a liaison, connecting the family to the therapeutic and other providers that they are referred to, based upon on an evidence-based assessment.

Embrace Families Solutions operates Breakthrough in partnership with the Orange County Youth Mental Health Consortium, and with funding from Orange County, Orange County Public Schools, Florida Dept. of Children and Families, and Embrace Families CBC.
