Miss Teddy

As a runaway, Miss Teddy came to Children's Home Society of Florida pregnant and alone. She needed guidance, love and security. We gave her all that and more. 

With newfound hope, Miss Teddy graduated high school, secured an apartment and is now in college.

See how she and others found hope through Children's Home Society of Florida.
