What we do
Our department focuses on keeping children, young adults, and families protected and empowered to live safe, healthy lives. We provide 24/7, residential care inclusive of enriching activities, counseling, academic support, and health/wellness services.
Youth and families can access free individual and/or family counseling with licensed therapists in eight locations throughout Hillsborough County. Youth in foster care are served through Residential Group Care services. Runaway or homeless youth in need of immediate help can find it here. Regulatory, ongoing monitoring, and training services for child care homes, facilities and after-school programs are also offered through the Child Care Licensing program.
