Children’s Home Society

Children’s Home Society of Florida provides a multitude of various services available to children and their families, the largest program being Dependency Case Management. This program identifies and assesses client and family needs of minors placed in care by the Department of Children and Families due to abuse or neglect by caretakers, with the ultimate goal of permanency. Partnerships with service providers in the area are strong, and we take a collaborative approach to best meeting the needs of the clients we serve through referrals for services and monitoring of their progress, and in turn report the information to the court system and Child Welfare Legal Services.  The Intern would participate in staff support, clerical documentation, ensure delivery of services, identify client needs, work towards program goals and objectives, and participate in client interactions including but not limited to court participation, staffings, meetings, transportation, visitation, and home visits.

With a national reputation, Children’s Home Society of Florida was instrumental in creating legislation to protect children’s rights. After playing an integral role in enacting Child Labor Laws, we drafted the Compulsory Education Law and rallied for the creation of the State Welfare Board and the agency that would become the Department of Children and Families. More recently, we assumed a lead role in the launch of community based care as Florida underwent a dramatic shift with the privatization of child welfare. We continue to fight for legislation protecting the rights of children and families, and we’re committed to doing right by kids, illustrated by our continuous accreditation by the Council on Accreditation since 1982.
