• Full Service Schools

    United Way of Northeast Florida -- Jacksonville is a diverse city with diverse needs. Full Service Schools recognizes that achievement is fostered in and out of the classroom, and the initiative brings together community resources, neighbors and schools to promote the health and well-being of students, their families, and neighborhood residents.

    The Full Service Schools collaboration enables United Way and its partners to connect nearly 3,500 students and families to a critical range of therapeutic, health and social services and address non-academic barriers to success in school.

    Full Service Schools can help:
    • children whose grades are dropping
    • families who are in crisis
    • students who are having trouble controlling their emotions
