With a rich legacy covering close to 120 years, CHS is committed to celebrating the good of all– from our programs to our team members–, so everyone feels at home on Team CHS.

Through our continued partnership with families within nearly every community in Florida, we know just how beautifully diverse our state truly is. It’s an asset, a treasure, and what makes our Sunshine State a true gem.

We know we’re stronger together when learning from one another and that understanding our needs and challenges is key to providing the best solutions and support in our mission of good.

After all, our neighbors are a beautiful mosaic of all nationalities, heritages, colors and abilities. They’re members of the LGBTQ+ community, females rising ahead, veterans … and so much more.

They’re the “why” behind our passion for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion… and why we’re proud to do our part in moving the needle forward as we help create greater opportunities for all.

We’re committed to empowering the families in our care every day to navigate tough topics togetherWithin our counseling program, our experienced counselors partner with families to navigate tough topics and vital conversations while diving deeper into the personal perspectives experienced every day.
