We're never satisfied with "what is." We constantly pursue "what can be."
We're leading the charge to develop new initiatives that dramatically transform lives, including:
Proven to improve academic achievement and lifelong success, community schools bring services right into the school, reaching students and families right where they're at.
CHS is involved in community schools in Orlando, Cocoa, Pensacola, Jacksonville and Tampa, and we continue to advocate for legislative support.
Tech Success Florida
Bridging the gap between disadvantaged youth and the technology that can open doors to their future, Tech Success Florida -- the only program of its kind -- turns odds into opportunities.
Changing the way we serve children in foster care
Our pay-for-success model, currently in pilot stage, is the first of its kind in Florida's child welfare system. Promising improved outcomes for kids, we've invested in a model proven to succeed in other states - and we're the only child welfare organization in Florida that's implemented it.
Our Children's Care Cloud, an award-winning innovation, promises to change the way case managers work and is expected to play a key role in improving outcomes for kids.
Still in its pilot stage, the Children's Care Cloud is the only app of its kind -- and CHS developed it.
Encouraging a new generation of philanthropists
Our K4K Florida campaign, inspired by a 10-year-old who wanted to make a difference, encourages kids to help other kids.
