Our Mission, Vision and Values

Big Bend Community Based Care (BBCBC) was created in 2002 as a direct response to Florida’s Legislature’s and Department of Children and Families’ initiative to improve child welfare services by developing solutions to care for children and families in their home communities. As the lead agency for 18 counties of the Big Bend region, Big Bend Community Based Care serves as the central location from which partner agencies can draw resources and support.

In 2013, the Florida Department of Children and Families awarded Big Bend Community Based Care the contract to become the Managing Entity for Substance Abuse and Mental Health (SAMH) services for the Northwest Region. The contract officially started April 1, 2013 and is a continuation of a 2001 statewide initiative by the Department of Children and Families which shifted direct DCF management of all statewide substance abuse and mental health contracts to purchase the administration of the service contracts

Our Mission – At BBCBC our sole purpose is to provide the highest quality child welfare, substance abuse and mental health services to children, adults and their families within their communities through a managed network of accredited providers.

Our Vision – Our vision is to create local ownership and effective integration of the child welfare and substance abuse mental health systems in each of our 18 communities. By doing so, we believe that the quality of life for children, adults and families we serve will dramatically improve, resulting in personal independence and stronger communities.

Substance abuse impairment is a disease which affects the whole family and the whole society and requires a system of care that includes prevention, intervention, clinical treatment, and recovery support services that support and strengthen the family unit.

The BBCBC system of care intends…

to reduce the occurrence, severity, duration, and disabling aspects of mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders. All individuals are to receive treatment services in the least restrictive, clinically appropriate setting.
