Mission

His House Children’s Home is a faith-based not-for-profit social services agency whose mission is to restore the lives of children and families. Established in 1989, the organization provides services to children removed from their homes due to substance abuse by the parents, domestic violence, all types of maltreatment and other circumstances, which have placed children at risk of harm. In 1996, the agency received a Child Placement Agency license in order to provide foster care services and since 2008, His House has been contracted with the Office of Refugee Resettlement to provide residential care, case management and clinical services to Unaccompanied Children entering the United States.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Residential Services

Children in the foster care system need a safe and loving place they can call home. At His House, children in state custody are cared for in a cozy home-like setting.

Our model of care is unlike the typical residential program. Each cottage provides a home for eight or more children and are led by nurturing child care professionals. The children eat meals as a family, participate in memorable activities including life skills sessions preparing them for a brighter future.

We take a holistic approach in the care of each child meeting their emotional, physical and educational needs. Through the support of faithful volunteers and community partners we provide an array of services and activities to meet the children's needs, from in-house clinical services to volunteer tutors to assist with homework, every aspect is important to our model of care.

Population(s) Served

Every child deserves a safe place to call home. The His House Foster Family Recruitment program was established in 1996 to expand residential services by inviting families in the community to share their own homes with children in need. His House recruits, trains, licenses, and supports foster parents.

Population(s) Served

Volunteers are invaluable for advancing the mission of His House. Their gift of time enriches and broadens the services provided to the children and greatly leverages resources for the agency. His House is unique in that it is the only residential care facility in South Florida that provides opportunities for volunteers of all ages to engage in service projects in a multitude of capacities. Monthly orientations and ongoing support are provided to volunteers to ensure that the children and agency’s needs are matched with the talents and skills of volunteers.

Population(s) Served

Designated by the Office of Refugee Resettlement, His House International was established in 2008 to care for Unaccompanied Children (UC) under the age of 18 who left their native countries due to gang violence, homelessness, economic hardship and abuse in the hopes of starting a new life in the U.S.

It is the program’s purpose to provide every UC client in care with a safe and nurturing family environment while expediting their case and corresponding documents for their timely reunification or release. In 2010, the agency also became a center for providing temporary care and expediting adoptions for orphaned children arriving from Haiti.

Population(s) Served

The Mental Health Counseling & Prevention Program is under the Clinical Department at His House, Inc. It was started in 2016 in response to an unmet need of children dealing with the emotional, mental and psychological trauma they have endured. The program addresses the short and long term negative effects of the trauma caused by the abuse, abandonment and neglect bringing them into foster care system. As a result of the pandemic, the children are being impacted even more severely. The program is delivered by Florida licensed clinicians, a nurse and a subcontracted psychiatrist for children who have significant mental/behavior needs.
