UNTIL EVERY CHILD IN CRISIS HAS A HOME
From the moment children are removed from their families, we meet their needs by demonstrating the love of God. Our goal is to protect, provide, and offer permanent solutions for these children and their families so they can have a hope-filled future.
Every child in Broward County who is brought into the Child Welfare system, from newborns to 17 year olds, upon being removed from their families due to abuse, neglect and/or abandonment is given tender care, support and supervision at SafePlace 4KIDS while they await a more permanent placement. One of the only programs of its kind in the State of Florida, SafePlace 4KIDS welcomes children, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with a clean bed, a warm meal and plenty of hugs help ease their transition until a foster family or group home can be found.
Knowing that God "sets the lonely into families," 4KIDS Foster Care
feels called to provide foster care services to temporary orphans by:
- Identifying, training, and licensing foster families.
- Placing children in licensed foster homes.
- Providing continuing education for foster families.
- Providing support services for children and their biological and foster families.
- Providing specialized foster homes for teens.
If you are a currently licensed foster parent or have been licensed within the past two years, please contact our licensing staff. For more information on 4KIDS MAPP Classes
—the Model Approach to Partnership in Parenting (MAPP) Training—please contact Joan Englert at JoanE@4KIDSofsfl.org
provides family-style homes for up to six kids aged 4–14. These homes allow us to keep siblings together on a short-term basis while they await a foster home or placement with a family member. Their care and support is provided by a live-in parent or couple. There are also homes for teenage girls, teenage guys, and a home for sibling groups of children.
Spirit of SucCess institute
4KIDS Spirit of Success Institute (SOSI)—provides long-term residential support to young adults aged 18–23 who are “aging out’ of foster care. At the Success Institute, we are much more than just a “safety net” to these young adults, who might otherwise end up homeless, unemployed, or in prison.
his caring place
4KIDS His Caring Place is a licensed teen maternity program that offers love and guidance to young women struggling with crisis pregnancies. Our 10-bedroom maternity home in Coconut Creek, Florida, is located on one-and-a-half acres in a semi-rural setting, away from the hustle and bustle of busy South Florida, but still conveniently close to church, schools, doctors, and other amenities. Our four-bedroom aftercare home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, offers a training and recovery program for young women who choose to parent and who qualify for aftercare services.
Today, thanks to an exciting program offered through 4KIDS, parents experiencing a temporary crisis can arrange for their children to stay with a Christian family while they address the issues that led to their situation. The program, Safe Families, is fast becoming a national model for communities that want to expand their safety net for at-risk children.
