Community Solutions

Community Solutions is an initiative resulting from a six-year, $9.5 million cooperative agreement between the City of Fort Worth and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Community Solutions’ goal is to create an accessible, culturally competent and seamless child- and family-driven system of care for Fort Worth families dealing with severe emotional disturbances. The City of Fort Worth Public Health Department serves as the lead agency, partnering with the Fort Worth Independent School District and members of Mental Health Connection of Tarrant County. Approximately 445 children will be served under the grant between 2002 and 2008.
