The Children's Home Society



Through the Bridges Program, we work to increase healthy births, decrease child abuse and neglect, and increase school readiness in targeted areas of Palm Beach County.  The program helps families obtain the services and assistance they need so they may support their children's learning and development.

The Nelle Smith Residence provides residential care and support for girls ages 13-18 who need long-term care due to a history of abuse, neglect and/or lack of an appropriate family setting. Services prepare girls for independent living and help them mature into adulthood with skills to attain self-sufficiency and a productive future.

Project 18 focuses on activities that prepare foster youth and homeless teens for successful independent living when they turn 18. Offered during after-school hours, the curriculum includes core classes, job coaching, substance abuse prevention activities, sports clubs, broadcast journalism training and life skills classes.

Safe Harbor is Palm Beach County's only emergency shelter for runaway and homeless youth, Safe Harbor also provides emergency shelter to teens in the dependency system while they await a more permanent placement.

Transitions Home provides a safe, nurturing environment for teen mothers and their babies to become a self-sufficient, healthy family. Mothers and their children may stay for up to two years.
