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.
The philosophy of this organization is to put children and families first. Through foster care and adoption services, Family Support services has placed needy children into loving, caring, nurturing homes. Through their Breakfast Learning series, they also strive to educate the community on issues concerning children and their families.
Wonderful, caring agency. Anyone I have ever spoken with has nothing but good things to say about them. The workers are caring, compasisonate and professional. They put children first and provide services in the home that are needed and appreciated.
