Mission

Children in Crisis is a local, non-profit charity committed to “Providing Homes…Keeping Brothers and Sister Together.” Children in Crisis, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization of caring people, working together to provide homes and keep brothers and sisters together. We give a home to the abused, neglected, and abandoned children of our community. Before Children in Crisis, there was no Emergency Shelter in Circuit One (which includes Okaloosa, Walton, Escambia, and Santa Rosa Counties in Northwest Florida) for young children removed from an unsafe environment on short notice. Without CIC and the stability it brings, many foster children would be moved from home to home, some as many as ten times per year. We have given a safe, loving home to over 995 children

Children in Crisis, Inc

Children in Crisis, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization of caring people, working together to provide homes and keeping brothers and sisters together. We give a home to the abused, neglected, and abandoned children.
Before Children in Crisis, there was no Emergency Shelter in Circuit One (which includes Okaloosa, Walton, Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties in Northwest Florida) for young children removed from an unsafe environment on short notice.
Without CIC and the stability it brings, many foster children would be moved from home to home, some as many as ten times per year. The Children’s Neighborhood provides a home to an average of 100 children per year. Since opening our doors in 2008, CIC has been called “home” by over 950 children. Providing these children with 123,857 days and nights of a safe, loving environment to grow and thrive.
At The Children’s Neighborhood, sibling separation is minimized and it is our priority to keep brothers and sisters together. Our neighborhood is growing, our campus is now built up of an Emergency Shelter, five-family foster homes and Opportunity Home, with 8-studio apartments for the young adults that age out of Foster Care. In addition, we have a clubhouse and Administrative Offices. Your commitment to helping sustain operations of the Children’s Neighborhood is vital to our success. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of hundreds of children.
