The Florida Keys Children's Shelter

Safe Kids, Strong Families and a Healthy Community

The Florida Keys Children’s Shelter is more than just a place to stay. Our extensive programs—both residential and non-residential—have helped and counseled thousands of children and families in their time of need since 1985. We’re dedicated to providing the best possible solutions for abused, abandoned or neglected children; and children that have run away, are truants, or are considered ungovernable by their parents.
