Each year, we help more than 1,800 vulnerable children and families in Broward County. We're determined to create brighter futures for even more kids. We're determined to change more lives and give hope to kids like Whitney.
The first time we met Joseph, his gaze never left the floor. He flinched when the door shut. Though his bruises were beginning to heal, the emotional wounds from his abusive childhood were still fresh and visibly painful. He desperately wanted to believe in a brighter tomorrow, but he just didn't know how.
Since entering our care, Joseph has embraced the support he's found through counseling. He's beginning to understand how to work through his painful memories. He's even thinking about his future ... he wants to become a counselor so he can help other kids find hope, just like Children's Home Society of Florida helped him.
