  • Mission:
  • “Providing Home and Establishing Hope” for the abused, neglected and abandoned children of Northwest Florida. The Children’s Neighborhood provides an Emergency Shelter for young children, and the family foster homes help with the severe shortage of foster homes in our community. Together, we can change the life of a child.

  • Overview:
  • Our mission is simple: “Providing Homes and Establishing Hope” to the abused, neglected and abandoned children of our community. The Children’s Neighborhood has an emergency shelter to provide a safe haven for young children removed from an unsafe environment on short notice and family foster homes to help with the severe shortage of foster homes. Our Teen Transition Home helps to prevent high school students aging out of foster care program from becoming homeless. Our priority is to keep brother/sister sibling families together.

    Thanks to our wonderful community over the last 11 years, we have provided a home, healthcare, education, counseling and spiritual guidance to over 550 children in a four county area in Northwest Florida; CIC covers circuit one which includes Walton, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa and Escambia counties. That’s over 56,000 days/nights of a home for an at-risk foster child. These children will grow to be our neighbors and co-workers, by helping them grow and providing a solid background at a young age, they will only be better citizens in our community in the future.

    A home: 3 meals and 3 snacks each day, School / Church / Play Clothing, toys, books, toiletries, personal blankets and all needs provided for each day/night of care.

    Health and Dental Care: A wellness check-up within 72 hours of arriving to CIC, and regular check-ups plus doctor visits for all illness. Dental check-up with cleaning and x-rays. All cavities filled, sealant given, and oral surgery if needed.

    Education: All children at CIC are brought up to grade level; although many come to CIC up to two grades below age level. Our CIC tutoring program is performed by our certified teacher on staff and trained volunteers. Extracurricular activities and Summer Enrichment program is an impactful part of our curriculum at CIC.

    Counseling: All children are referred for counseling upon arrival at CIC. A counseling plan is established and house parents work with counselors to help our children with processing trauma from abuse, neglect and abandonment.

    Spiritual: Each child is given faith based spiritual principles to live by, while being exposed to many community churches. The Faith Community is involved with CIC children as a huge support, guide and advocate.

  • History:
  • In 2002, a group of Northwest Florida community leaders identified a critical need for additional foster care facilities for abused and neglected children in the four-county area of Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, and Walton Counties. Children in Crisis, Inc., a non-profit 501 (c)(3) charity, was established to raise and manage the funds to build, staff and operate The Children’s Neighborhood, a residential style foster care neighborhood. From this small grass-roots group of individuals, the organization has grown tremendously and now provides an Emergency Shelter for young children aged 6-14, three Family Foster homes for children aged 6-17, and a eight-unit apartment complex to teach independent/transitional living skills to teens 18-22 years old, aging out of Florida’s foster care system. We are opening our fourth family foster home on October 20, 2015 and have received funding to build another home in 2016. Since the first child walked through our door in 2008, Children in Crisis has provided quality care and a loving home for over 550 children totaling over 56,000 days and nights of care.
