Who we are

The Haven for Children is a non-profit organization licensed by the Department of Children and Families (DCF) of the State of Florida to provide therapeutic shelter care in a homelike environment for children from 0-18  who have been removed from their homes because of neglect, abuse or abandonment.

Our goal is to nourish and protect the children in our care and guide them toward positive self-growth.  Currently, we have three homes that serve an average of ten children each.  Each home is led by a trained staff that provides 24/7 care, 365 days per year.

Mission & Vision Statements

Mission: To provide healing and nurturing, with residential and therapeutic care for children who have significant emotional and behavioral disorders and have been removed from their families due to abuse, neglect or abandonment. 

Vision: With broad community support, The Haven for Children will operate residential homes that provide the highest level of treatment for our children.  We will treat, teach, and nurture each child individually to help them reach his or her full potential, with the purpose of ending the cycle of child abuse and neglect, one child at a time.  Children who come to live at The Haven will find stability and permanency until they are adopted, reunified, or reach adulthood.
