About

You can help bring local children a little closer to home as a volunteer at Children’s Home Society of Florida's Family Visitation Center. As a volunteer, you will supervise court-ordered visits between children and families who have been separated due to suspected abuse or neglect. The Family Visitation Center is a safe, neutral meeting place that is complete with a kitchen and a playground! This all helps children feel at ease so that they can spend time with their parents playing, relaxing, and just being kids! As our counselors work with parents to create a safer and more supportive environment for their children, weekly visits help parents stick to their case plan and keep motivated to work through challenges. This helps more children return home sooner and with less stress. That's what we call, a job well done!
