The Children's Home is a child and family centered organization that is positioned to care for struggling families and children seeking the comfort of a loving family. With roots that can be traced back to 1892, we have been a beacon in the community—providing a safe haven for children who have suffered abuse, neglect or abandonment. The tradition of love sparked by our founders continues to be our driving force to protect, heal and care for Tampa Bay’s children and families. We believe children deserve the opportunity to have a happy childhood. We believe families deserve a chance to be successful. These values are the essence of our mission to create a community where children and families feel loved, nurtured, and safe.Children need love. Families need security. That's why we are charged with being the source of strength and opportunity for children and families. Through our nationally recognized residential therapeutic program to our Family Support and Resource Centers, we have impacted the lives of many who rely on support and care during times of uncertainty. Over the years, we have helped more than 6,000 children realize their dream of a family, and we have cared for more than 25,000 children in the community. The Children's Home is a local 501 (C)(3) not-for-profit organization serving the Central Florida region.

Congratulations to Ian Roach and Joseph Pergolizzi, two Tampa area high school senior hockey players, who were honored at the Tampa Bay Lightning game on March 13, 2014 by the Dave Andreychuk Foundation and the Tampa Bay Lightning Foundation. Both were chosen as recipients of the Dave Andreychuck Scholarship for 2014!
