Protecting kids: Residential Care
Our residential home provides more than safety. We offer counseling, nurturing and encouragement as kids and teens work through pain that brought them into our care.
Additionally, teens receive guidance and education as they approach their 18th birthday and prepare to exit foster care on their own – independently and ready for success.
Five homes across 11 acres provide healing and care to children ages 6 to 17. Offered in Lutz.
