Manatee Children’s Services
We provide a full spectrum of programs serving over 12,000 children and families annually. Since its start in 1977 as the Manatee County’s first and only emergency shelter for abused children in foster care, our agency has grown to offer programs in treatment, prevention, intervention, and residential services. Additionally, our group homes are the first in Manatee County to operate as licensed group homes, with specific licensure for human trafficking by the Florida Department of Children and Families.
Our mission: to advocate for and provide the resources, skills, and shelter to alleviate abuse through prevention and intervention for all children and their families.
