A Child's Life
Realities for former foster youth:

33% will be on the streets within three years
66% are high school dropouts
50% are unemployed
60% will have babies within four years

We offer something else: HOPE



Help kids


Smiling young girlEvery dollar helps a child ... and we helped more than 76,000 kids and family members just last year. We can't do it alone - we need you ... so do our kids! Every day, we work to keep kids safe and help victims heal from their traumas. Won't you help us? Just $7/day can protect a child from suffering. $150 can give a child a full day and night of safety and healing. $900 can put a struggling expectant mother on the right path with encouragement, guidance and proper prenatal care. And for a child who has suffered the brutalities of abuse ... it's $64,000/year to help her heal, find stability and safety, and see hope for tomorrow.

Your generosity will truly turn a life around. Your generosity will replace tears with smiles, fear with hope. Please, give today.

Leave a legacy

Making a difference for the next generationMore than 100 years ago, kids were hurting ... and Children's Home Society of Florida was founded. Today, kids are hurting - so we work day in and day out to heal their pain, to protect them from suffering again. One hundred years from now, kids will still be hurting - and we must continue to be here, continue to be the ray of hope and opportunity they so desperately need. But like everything else we do, we cannot do it alone; we rely on the forward-thinking, generous donors who desire to invest in the future of our kids, in the future of Florida.

Does this sound like you? If so, please let us know! We'd love to talk with you about leaving a legacy for generations of children through planned giving. Your foresight can rewrite the future for kids.
