Sometimes we all need a little help. An advocate in our corner. A hand-up, not a handout. A ray of hope.
At Children's Home Society of Florida, we believe in empowering families to safely care and provide for their children. We believe that, when safe, the best place for children is at home with their loved ones. And we believe that every child deserves the stability and guidance of a permanent family.
With our myriad of services, Children's Home Society of Florida protects children and strengthens youth and families throughout the state. From in-home family support programs to independent living services for teenagers who have “aged out” of foster care, our programs transform lives. Our programs protect more and more children from ever feeling the wrath of abuse. Our programs provide hope.
Thanks to the dedication of compassionate volunteers, devoted staff and generous contributors, we make a difference for Florida’s children and families. And we pledge to make an even bigger difference. We invite you to join us.
