Two o'clock in the morning. Whether it is drug overdose, domestic violence, or just the landlord evicting a single mother with three children, Family Support Services dispatches a licensed social worker to assist the family with children.

I have attended many adoptions events at the courthouse, spoken to foster parents, and watched children who were kicked out of their homes made to feel loved and comforted. This is the most outstanding community based care organization (as rated by the Florida Department of Children & Families). If you are looking for a model agency with less that a 4% operating overhead, this is it. 96% of all monies go directly to helping children and families.

They have defined what it means to be "community based care." They are rated as the number one child welfare agency in innovation -- SCUBA diving for foster children.
