— Residents of Flagler County have a new resource to receive a range of social support. Flagler Cares recently opened the Flagler County Village, a hub for community organizations to provide extensive services in a single location to those in need.
The center is open from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday and is located at City Marketplace, 160 Cypress Point Parkway, Suite B302 in Palm Coast.
In addition to Flagler Cares, the Village offers services from the Early Learning Coalition of Flagler and Volusia, Healthy Start Coalition of Flagler and Volusia Counties, and The House Next Door. Services provided include assistance with Identification documents; financial counseling; homelessness prevention support; rapid rehousing; behavioral health navigation; access to early learning programs and voluntary pre-K; mental health counseling; and more.
The Flagler County Village initiative has been made possible by support from AdventHealth Palm Coast and the AdventHealth Palm Coast Foundation.
“AdventHealth is very pleased to support the mission of Flagler County Village,” said Dr. Paul Mucciolo, medical director of the emergency department at AdventHealth Palm Coast. “Every day in the emergency room, we treat many of our Flagler County neighbors who are struggling with issues including access to mental health care. Having this ‘one-stop-shop’ to connect residents with the services they need will help us address pressing challenges to the health of our community.”
Flagler Cares is hosting an open house event to celebrate the launch of the Flagler County Village on Jan. 24 from 3 to 5 pm.
