We provide:

  • Healthy family care
  • Comprehensive case management
  • Therapy
  • Tutoring
  • Mentoring
  • Education
  • Physical and spiritual development
  • Essential life-skills training
  • Healing and restoration

family-foster-1Our Family Cottages are located within a unique, safe, and serene gated neighborhood. Although individual circumstances and the courts determine the precise length of stay for each child, we strive to provide a stable and loving family home for children until they either attain permanency (family reunification or adoption) or are of age to live independently. Our proven effective model employs professionally trained live-in Cottage Parents caring for no more than six children in each Family Cottage; 36 children on the campus. They devote their full time, talents, and energies to the children, creating a stable and structured traditional family setting. This promotes skills and social development, preparing children for life’s challenges and independence.

Because children in foster care often experience multiple placement disruptions while in the
system, we strive to meet their critical needs by providing structure, stability, consistency, and growth opportunities. While many siblings in foster care are forced to live apart, we strive to reunify brothers and sisters and maintain crucial family relationships.

family-foster-2In fact, the majority of children in our care have been reunited with their brothers and sisters at Place of Hope. Most of these children were previously forced to live in scattered placements throughout our region. Together, children learn core values such as love, responsibility, and character. They learn about healthy relationships and seek true healing as their basic needs are met. Place of Hope is meeting desperate needs within our community and creating a blueprint for other communities.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1456265349122{margin-bottom: 0px !important;padding-top: 50px !important;padding-bottom: 50px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”KidSanctuary Campus” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:center” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]kidsanct-logoPlace of Hope is proud to partner with KidSanctuary Campus to provide parents and services at an additional campus that will serve children in foster care in West Palm Beach. We currently have The Dodero Family Cottage and the J. M. Rubin Foundation Cottage where six girls each reside. Our third cottage, Sam’s Cottage, has been built and is ready for six boys to enjoy! This is a wonderful opportunity for Place of Hope to expand its ministry at no additional cost as the homes are totally funded by KidSanctuary Campus supporters.

KidSanctuary Campus, Inc. is a charitable organization located in Palm Beach County that is committed to assisting children who have been removed from their home because of neglect and abuse. The homes are built on land donated by Palm Beach County, and a Capital Campaign is raising the money necessary for KidSanctuary Campus to finish the project.

It is my vision that one day, KidSanctuary Campus will be a safe haven for dozens of children who would not otherwise have the kind of family love, consistency and structure that our Place of Hope parents bring to them each day.”
