Established in 1902 as a haven for children arriving in Jacksonville on the orphan trains, CHS is still the difference between survival and success for many of Florida’s children. Now serving more than 50,000 children and families statewide, no other organization has the size, scope or solution-driven focus that CHS brings to empower children to cross bridges to success. The vision at CHS is a world where all children realize their full potential.
