Just Care Family Network

A department of Shelby County’s Division of Community Services, Just Care Family Network is a federally funded grant program through the Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration, administered by the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.

Our mission: To change the Memphis system of care to make life easier and less frustrating for the families we serve. We partner with youth and families to link them to services.

Through this mission, JCFN seeks to achieve the following goals:

  • Decrease the incidence and length of stay of children with emotional, behavioral, or mental health needs in placements outside the home.
  • Increase access to a broad array of services incorporated in an individualized service plan for each child/youth.
  • Improve the functioning of children with serious emotional disturbances clinically, academically, and behaviorally.
  • Decrease parent stress
  • Institutionalize an infrastructure of family-driven and culturally competent services.
