Florida Child Services & Centers

The state of Florida values young people and therefore has created safe pathways to help increase overall quality of life and education of children. The Florida Network of Youth and Family Services, Inc. includes agencies that serve lockouts/homeless, runaway, and troubled youth ages 10 to 17, as well as their families. Many nonprofits exist in Florida that are focused on keeping the youth safe and in a healthy environment, such as the Boys & Girls Club, which offer free childcare for those who qualify and the Department of Child and Families, which offers assistance to protect children from endangerment and mistreatment.

The mission of the Child Protection Center, Inc. (CPC) is Child Abuse: Prevention, Intervention and Treatment. CPC envisions a community in which children are safe from abuse and free to thrive. 

Easterseals has the nation’s largest network of inclusive child development centers for infants through preschool (0-5 years of age). In these settings educators meet the needs of students (with and without disabilities) through the use of specialized approaches and instruction to prepare preschoolers for entry into the school system or to support current students to achieve at their highest level.

Mission is to improve our quality of life in Lake County by providing coordination and funding for prevention and intervention programs for children, youth and families through collaborative, community-based services.
