Statement from YFA’s Board of Directors

Youth and Family Alternatives (YFA) is, and will always be, committed to providing the very best service for all of the children and youth in its care, including the most troubled.  

In recent days, unknown and unfortunate incidents have lead to the termination of YFA’s case management contract in Hillsborough County by Eckerd Connects, the regional Community-Based Care agency.  We have apologized to our professional community and we deeply regret the incidents. Our goal now is to reassure the community that we have been engaged and will continue to be engaged in addressing these concerns.  

From the onset, we have been kept fully informed by the professional leadership and staff of YFA during this process of fact-finding.  In addition, the Board has taken immediate corrective action and will continue to take appropriate action to ensure these isolated incidents are not repeated.  

We are fully committed to make every effort possible to provide quality service for the children and youth in our care. 

Thank you,

YFA Board of Directors
