4Kids of South Florida

4KIDS of South Florida

4KIDS is a faith-based foster care agency operating in Broward and Palm Beach counties. They work primarily through churches to train foster and adoptive parents, place children in Christian homes and provide a support network. They own several homes that provide emergency shelter or longer-term living for sibling groups, teens and children who have recently aged out of foster care. 4KIDS runs SafePlace, which is the 24-hour shelter where every child is taken if they are removed from their home in Broward County. 4KIDS staff provide help and encouragement until a permanent placement is found.
