Every year, we help nearly 4,800 kids and families in Pensacola and the Western Panhandle. We're determined to create brighter futures for children. And we succeed.  We change lives.  We create families ... families like Allan and Laura's. 

Allan and Laura

Some children grow in their mom's belly, but other children grow in their mom's heart. Allan and Laura always knew they had so much love to share and even though they couldn't create their family naturally, they now share their love with three beautiful daughters. 

Find out how Laura and Allan formed their forever family.

THANK YOU to all who supported our 11th Annual "Soundside Splendor"! This year, through the generous help of our sponsors and guests, more than $204,000 was raised to help stop child abuse in Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton counties.

Our Trauma Recovery Initiative leads the way in helping abused and neglected kids and teens heal from their pain. Our experienced counselors are specially trained in helping traumatized children.
