Community partners serve schools by administering funds, participating as a member of the FAST Team, and handling program logistics, such as ordering supplies and submitting evaluations. But, these partnerships are also beneficial for community organizations and create opportunities to bring together families and resources, while improving family dynamics.
These benefits are evident in the FAST for Elementary School level implementation currently running through Jewish Community Services of South Florida, which administers program funding from The Children’s Trust. FAST cycles occur at two sites run by Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Miami: South Dade Child Development Center and Sagrada Familia Child Development Center.
