Children in Crisis is a local, non-profit charity committed to “Providing Homes…Keeping Brothers and Sisters Together.”
Children in Crisis, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization of caring people, working together to provide homes and keep brothers and sisters together. We give a home to the abused, neglected, and abandoned children of our community.
Before Children in Crisis, there was no Emergency Shelter in Circuit One (which includes Okaloosa, Walton, Escambia, and Santa Rosa Counties in Northwest Florida) for young children removed from an unsafe environment on short notice.
Without CIC and the stability it brings, many foster children would be moved from home to home, some as many as ten times per year. We have given a safe, loving home to over 1000 children since 2008.
Our neighborhood is growing; our campus is now comprised of an Emergency Shelter, five family foster homes, and our Opportunity Home, consisting of eight studio apartments for the young adults that age out of Foster Care. In addition, we have Kay’s Cupboard, King Whitmire Therapy Center, Clubhouse, and Administrative Offices. Your commitment to helping sustain the operations of the Children’s Neighborhood is vital to our success. We sincerely thank our donors and supporters for building the Children’s Neighborhood. Together, we are making a difference in the lives of hundreds of children. Thank you for supporting our children!
