Inspiring GOOD through the decades… Before the invention of bubble gum, Children’s Home Society of Florida was helping children grow up in safe, loving homes. 1910- CHS Superintendent Marcus “Daddy” Fagg was an active contributor to the writing, editing and passage of several child welfare laws including the Child Labor Law, the Compulsory Education Law and the Wife Desertion Law. In 1925, the mechanical television was invented and Children’s Home Society of Florida had three locations – Jacksonville, Pensacola and Miami. In the 1930s, a loaf of bread cost 9¢ and Children’s Home Society of Florida first went into schools, helping to secure medical and dental exams, as well as hearing and vision tests for children. We continue this work today through the Community Partnership Schools™ model. By the time Walt Disney World opened in 1971, Children’s Home Society of Florida was providing a variety of services – including counseling and early childhood, services for developmentally delayed and disabled children and parent education courses -- in all 67 Florida Counties. In 2022, Children’s Home Society of Florida celebrates 120 years of devoted service to children and families across the sunshine state.

Keep the GOOD going!
