Family Pathways



Success University is a comprehensive family support program which provides a variety of services to stabilize our children, youth, and their families and prepare them for success.

Program services include:

  • Individual and Family Therapy
  • Tutoring
  • Bus Pass Assistance
  • Emergency Financial Assistance
  • And more...

The program utilizes an integrated CARE COORDINATION model and partners with community-based organizations to ensure holistic, quality services are provided to all at-risk Miami Beach children and families.


Care Coordination begins at the onset of Success University and is the cornerstone of the program. Each family is matched with a well-trained specialist called a Care Coordinator, who listens to the strengths, needs, and wants of the family, and then works with them to develop an individualized Blueprint for Success. Each goal on the family’s Blueprint has specific steps and timelines to ensure success, which are set in accordance with the family’s preferences.

No question is too big or too small for your Care Coordinator. He or she will help your family find solutions to the challenges you face daily, including academic concerns, school absenteeism, trouble paying the rent, disagreements at home, or a complex mixture of these experiences and many more. If we don’t initially have an answer, we promise to find it for you. Because the program bases most of its services out of the home, you bear less of a burden when accessing help. Staff prioritizes your needs at every encounter and schedules meetings when and where it is most convenient to your family.

Care Coordination draws on as many natural, educational, and community supports as possible. It is the team-oriented aspect of the program that really makes it special. Families guide the process and are ultimately responsible for their own success, but we – program staff, teachers, extended family, neighbors, friends, and others – are here to support them along the way.
