Florida Baptist Children’s Homes does a lot more than just give children a place to live.

We make sure they are treated like part of a loving family! They receive quality medical care, nourishing food, proper clothes and an education.

We give them counseling, lots of love and attention and try to give them a childhood that’s as normal as possible under difficult circumstances. But the most important thing we give them is hope – because we teach them about the love of Jesus!

Who We Serve

Our campuses serve school-age boys and girls in family-style homes, which we refer to as “cottages.” Typically, there are bedrooms for one, two or three children, a family room, living room, kitchen and laundry room. Each residence accommodates up to eight children at a time, and each is staffed with house parents.

We meet immediate needs and provide eternal hope to children through our amazing HOUSE PARENTS.

Children arrive on our campuses in the midst of trauma and in need of a safe, loving support system to help them find their way.

We provide continued support and comfortable accommodations for our house parents around the state to help them focus on being able to meet the distinct needs of each child in their care. We look for devoted, patient people who will be there for the children when they need someone to talk to, a shoulder to cry on, a hand to grasp, a word of encouragement, a healing smile and hope for the future.
