Since 1978, the Family Resource Center of South Florida has been championing the rights of children to grow up in a healthy and safe environment. We were founded by a group of concerned citizens, with the mission to help prevent and treat child abuse and neglect through the strengthening of families.

Today, the agency is a leader in child welfare services, providing a full continuum of services that help prevent and treat child abuse and neglect through the strengthening of families. In the past year, Family Resource Center of South Florida provided services to more than 2,500 children, adolescents and adults. Most referrals come from the Florida Department of Children and Families, Citrus Family Care Network, the Miami-Dade County Juvenile Court, and the Guardian Ad Litem Program. Services are available in English, Spanish and Creole.

The Family Resource Center is driven by the principle that nothing is more fundamental to a community than the safety and well being of its children. Its goal is to prevent and change dysfunctional parent/child interaction patterns, promote positive self-concepts, and build healthy relationships to prevent child abuse and neglect through family support, crisis intervention, housing location, family preservation, parent education and counseling. Child abuse and neglect continue to be a growing problem in South Florida. To make matters worse, deep funding cuts to social service agencies coupled with more than 198,000 Hotline abuse reports last year have combined to create an overwhelming budget crunch for agencies like the Family Resource Center that daily stand in the gap for these children and families.
