About

At our Intercoastal Division, Children's Home Society has a warm, nurturing group home for girls and boys up to the age of 15 who have suffered severe abuse, neglect, abandonment and/or exploitation. Because of the intense trauma these children have endured, traditional foster homes and group homes are unable to provide the specialized therapy and care they need to begin healing from their pain. Our professional, experienced staff is at the home 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Community groups, organizations and individuals are needed to provide a meal or snack for the children who are staying with us. Volunteers must bring their own supplies to cook/bake for 8-15 children. In an effort to prevent food borne illnesses, all meals must be either prepared at the House or delivered/catered from a restaurant or pre-packaged supermarket tray.
