Kids Central, Inc. is the nonprofit organization serving Citrus, Hernando, Lake, Marion and Sumter Counties. The agency develops and manages a comprehensive, community-based system of care for abused, neglected and abandoned children and their families. Kids Central is committed to promoting the welfare of expectant mothers, babies, children and young adults through prevention services, in-home care, foster care, and adoption.
Together with involvement from the communities we serve, Kids Central is Building Better Lives® and strengthening families in our part of the Sunshine State.
Every April, Kids Central launches End Kids’ Tears, its child abuse prevention campaign. End Kids’ Tears is a collaborative effort to raise awareness of child abuse and promote healthy parenting. For more information on abuse in your community, read the community statistic sheets. Get more involved by attending an April event, by pledging to be more involved and aware in your neighborhood, or by donating to the campaign.
