Preparing for independence

A note from Destiny

Children's Home Society of Florida has been a huge help in my life. Helping me understand all of my bills along with work and school. I don't know what I would do without you. I especially would like to thank everyone that kept faith in me and believed that I could do better than I ever imagined. I feel that through this program, I have mentors that I can just talk to when life seems too overwhelming. We as foster children need adults who are positive that can guide us in the right direction.

A note from Bianca

Dear Children's Home Society of Florida,

If it wasn't for this program, I would've been on the streets with nowhere to go. You have given me great resources and a chance. A chance to be somebody and figure out who and what I want to be. I used to have no motivation. Now I have so much motivation I don't know what to do with it. I believe that there's nothing more important than feeling like you can do something. Thank you for giving me my inspiration.
