"You're the only family I have ever had. I know that with a little hard work, I can do this."
- Jen, a teen who found safety at Hansen House
Help more kids
Every year, we help more than 2,700 kids and families in Highlands, Hardee and Polk Counties.
We're determined to create brighter futures for our children. And we succeed. We change lives. We help create families ... families like Ron and Violet's.
Ron and Violet have hearts to help kids. They open their home to our kids and, most importantly, they open their hearts. They give hurting kids the greatest gift of all: Hope. Read more about how Ron and Violet have grown their forever family through adoption.
