Mission Statement

The Eckerd Kids mission is to provide and share solutions that promote the well-being of children and families in need of a second chance. Our vision is to ensure that each child has the opportunity to succeed. Eckerd Kids operates on the basis of several key values: We base our concepts upon a belief in God and respect for all. Youth always comes first. Services should focus on the family. Local communities must be engaged and empowered. We hold ourselves accountable for achieving superior outcomes. We engage people from a strength-based perspective. We are good financial stewards. We build strong and lasting partnerships. We have the courage to innovate and change. Everything we do is supported by one or more of these values. This is what drives us and helps us make sure that, no matter what, the children and families we serve are our top priority.
