Comfort in CoParenting

Helping parents work together

The goal of Comfort in Coparenting is to provide assessments, high-level educational sessions, family mediation services, coaching (using motivational interviewing and coaching techniques), mentoring and modeling, and referrals to counseling services and/or case management services to facilitate a healthier co-parenting relationship. The program is designed to engage families for a minimum of three months.

Comfort in Coparenting targets couples who are pregnant of parenting at any age, marital status, sexual orientation, or gender. The program is designed to effectively reach and enroll low-income (according to 2021 Federal Poverty Guidelines) BIPOC couples/parents. Given the time-intensive nature of the program’s services, Comfort in Coparenting seeks to serve 10 couples per program year. Each participant will receive up to six hou
rs of family mediation (resulting in a parenting time plan) and ongoing coaching and mentoring services.

Faith-Based Projects

Ending the HIV Epidemic

Stay Up-to-Date and

Enroll in the Commitment to Mobilize! 

As public health professionals, we cannot do it alone. We need your skill, your relationships, your reputation, and your wisdom to make our communities healthier. Whatever you can commit to, big or small, WILL make a difference. We welcome all faith-based entities. This includes all denominations of churches, ministries, groups, those unaffiliated, and other entities motivated by faith, a higher power, or religion. This educational program is a safe space for everyone. 

The BaBa Project

Fatherhood Education and Support Services

The BaBa Project or BaBa is a unique program that is designed for all people who identify as a male but will more specifically target unmarried BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and persons of color) people who identify as a male between 15 and 26 years old who reside in the Central Florida area and have no children, are expecting, or have children between the ages of 0-18 years old. This program will provide education and support services designed to reduce the burden on BIPOC fathers who do not have the knowledge of or support to establish or utilize their parental rights in the State of Florida. The program aims to educate males before they become fathers so they can apply what is learned once they begin having children and improve the outcomes for their father/child relationship before their child is born. Individuals who are already parenting will be offered the same services including help with their coparenting relationship, documentation, education, and other services. Program participants will be offered quarterly Legitimacy Workshops designed to ensure they understand their rights as fathers in the State of Florida (ideally, before they become fathers) and will be assisted in completing an evidence-informed online fatherhood training. The program will also offer support for BIPOC fathers with children to better ensure those fathers have supplies for their children when they are in their care.

SAY IT WITH YOUR TEST AND MAKE $20!

Are you Covid-19 negative? HIV negative? We want you to say it with your TEST!

Saying it with your chest is a colloquial phrase, often used in communities of color. It means to say it with confidence--say it without doubt. It means to STAND ON IT. 

 

It is important we KNOW our health status without making unsafe assumptions. We need to be able to say with confidence that we are healthy and well. That goes for any type of health concern or issue.

 

Our Say It With Your Test Campaign wants you to know your status. No matter the test, we want you to BE SURE, you are in an optimal state of wellness. 

There is only one way to know...GET TESTED!

 

We want to help make that easier. We have free HIV and Covid-19 self-testing kits. That means you can take these tests in the privacy of your home!

Just text the letters SAYIT (no spaces) to 66866. Thanks to a partnership with the Hope and Help Center of Central Florida, we can offer you a $20 gift card for taking the HIV self-test. 

You can also request a test kit by texting 407.801.9046

We are planning to add more health testing options. If you are interested in partnering, please contact us.
