Mental health is about Mental Wellness 
Mental Wellness is about Total Wellness
Total Wellness is about being ready for life

We all carry baggage 
We all have our own challenges
We all need to be ready for those challenges

This is the opportunity!  


City of Life has simple goals:

  • Enlighten
  • Educate
  • Emancipate         

 

We all carry baggage with unique challenges.  

Community Based Care of Central Florida is focused on making a difference in the lives of foster care children in Central Florida by providing tools and education to foster care youth and their support system that will empower young people to eventually leave the system ready to deal with life’s challenges, and there are many.  


The initial goal is to provide proactive support in the following areas:

  •  ADD and ADDHD
  •  Anxiety Disorder
  • Anger Management
  • Depression    
  • Post traumatic Stress Disorder 
  • Self-Care 
  • Coping Skills to stay healthy
  • Suicide
  • Substance Abuse  


These categories are prevalent in the Orange County report on Health issues as well as most professional reports on mental wellness challenges.

We would take these main stream issues and further develop them into more day to day challenges such as:

  1. Avoiding Alcohol Abuse
  2. Living with Chronic illness
  3. Avoiding and Living with Injuries
  4. Avoiding Smoking
  5. Avoiding Drug Use
  6. Living with Nutrition
  7. Activities of Daily Living
  8. Work Place Success
  9. Planning Fitness in Your Life
  10. Appropriate Sexual Activity


As we develop our talent pool and learn from our efforts we will see more well adjusted young people coming out of the child welfare system with a positive attitude on life and feeling good about themselves.

  • We expect to Enlighten                     
  • We expect to Educate                        
  • With a Purpose of  Emancipation
  • Empowered to manage life’s many challenges.​ 

Our vision is to see every foster care youth leave the system in a state of total wellness, physical and mental, prepared to make a contribution to our community.  City of Life is committed to assisting this effort by providing important tools to help along the way.
