About the Children's Services Division
The Children's Services Division is committed to empowering youth and families to be successful, healthy, and self-reliant through education, care, and support in a safe and nurturing environment.

Vision
Our vision is to be recognized as the nationally acclaimed premier provider of comprehensive, innovative, and efficient services for Hillsborough County’s youth and families.

Values
  • We are committed to providing the highest standards of quality services to the Hillsborough County community.
  • We believe in being fiscally responsible for ensuring that all employees are good stewards of money, time, and resources.
  • We believe in providing a level of services that holds us accountable to the needs and expectations of our community.
  • We are committed to providing a safe, caring, nurturing, learning environment.
  • We promote teamwork through ongoing dialogue, training, and educational opportunity.
  • We demonstrate ethical treatment of youth and families by acknowledging individual strengths, needs, and diversity.
  • We value differences among all. Although our youth come from very difficult circumstance, we recognize that every person starts from a different place.
  • We believe in providing an atmosphere that is inclusive rather than exclusive and that admits to mistakes and models by doing.

Theory of Change
Our staff and the youth we serve need and deserve to be treated with respect and given opportunities for self-exploration and to develop a sense of belonging within an environment that is safe and nurturing.

Effective Change
Effective change occurs through developing positive relationships and stress modification. A consistent, safe, sensory-calming environment for both youth and staff will promote healthy social and emotional functioning.
