Manatee Children’s Services
MCS provides a full spectrum of programs serving over 16,000 children and families annually. Since its inception in 1977 as the Manatee County’s first and only emergency shelter for abused children in foster care, MCS has grown to offer programs in treatment, prevention, intervention, and residential services.
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.

MCS Holiday Project 2022 Recap
Thank you to everyone who made the 2022 MCS Holiday Project a success. Because of our generous community, we were able to raise almost $15,000 in gift cards, presents, and donations for the children we serve. The smiles on children’s faces and the outpouring of love they felt was priceless and is a gift they will always remember.
Save the Date for our Spring Fundraiser!
Cruise by on Saturday, March 11, for our first car show fundraiser to benefit the programs at Manatee Children’s Services dedicated to breaking the cycle of child abuse.
