    For more than a century, Children’s Home Society of Florida has been the leader in serving children and families throughout Florida. We’re well known for our determination to help children who have suffered abuse or neglect, and the depth and breadth of our services extends into nearly every Florida community.

    But we’re committed to do more.  In pursuit of our mission, building bridges to success for children, we’re intensifying our efforts to help more children grow up in safe, strong families before complicated challenges threaten their wellbeing.  We’re expanding our footprint in early childhood education and in proven child abuse prevention programs. We’re growing our behavioral health programs.  And, we’re leading Florida’s effort to develop successful community schools and unique health and wellness programs in the state’s most impoverished neighborhoods.
