Unlike most mental health agencies, our therapeutic services are experience and adventure-based. Instead of in an office, many of our sessions take place sailing across Tampa Bay, walking the beach, kayaking through mangroves, or at a local park.
We provide a range of therapeutic services including:
Students meet with our mental health counselors at least one a week both in the home and on board the boat.
We prioritize families first, our experienced treatment teams lead family counseling to help repair and develop relationships between children and adults.
Our treatment team works directly with our caregivers to provided on call behavioral support.
SailFuture is a licensed behavorial health services agency, and provides quality mental health treatment to youth in our residential programs.
Our mental health counselors develop detailed treatment plans and goals for students in conjunction with our caregivers to ensure a comprehensive support.
Our counselors perform in-depth assessments upon intake.

We're always looking for qualify and compassionate adults to help serve the children in our community.
A more recent project is SailFuture Academy, a St. Petersburg foster care agency that is opening a vocational high school this fall for lower-income who have become disengaged in traditional high school settings.
The program will focus on giving students career skills in a real-life environment.

SailFuture serves teens throughout the St. Petersburg community, and with the purchase and recent redevelopment of the historic Norwood Elementary School, the innovative organization is better equipped to prepare kids for success as adults.
