In the communities of Citrus, Hernando, Lake, Marion or Sumter County, Florida, approximately 1,600 children are living in crisis every day. Kids Central recruits, trains, licenses, and supports foster parents and children who have suffered abuse, abandonment, and neglect. Foster parents provide nurturing, temporary homes to children during their greatest moment of need. Foster parents provide a loving refuge until the child is able to return home or transition to a permanent living arrangement. Kids Central’s caring foster parents are everyday heroes who make lifelong difference in just a short time. If you feel called to care for a child who has suffered, please consider becoming a foster parent.
