Protecting Kids: Dependency Case Management
Children unable to live safely at home find security, guidance, and opportunity with CHS. Our priority is always their safety and well-being, and our case managers are passionate about building bridges to success for children in foster care.

We also empower kids to realize their full potential by providing opportunities for counseling, tutoring, other educational activities, recreational activities, mentoring, and more.

Are you a current foster parent with feedback to share with CHS? Complete this short form to let us know what’s on your mind! We read every single submission, and someone will respond to you soon.

Early Childhood Court

Our Early Childhood Court program is committed to helping families succeed. Our dedicated team of advocates, therapists, child welfare professionals, and service providers work alongside the family’s case manager to help them achieve well-being and success. Keeping the child’s best interests at hand, the young child will either return home to their parents or begin their new journey to a forever family through adoption on an expedited timeline.

Protecting Kids: Foster Homes
We recruit, license, and support loving foster families that provide stability and safety to children amid uncertainty.

Requirements to become a foster parent

Many adults are eligible to become foster parents in their state but do not always realize it. Each state in the U.S. has regulations and requirements for licensing foster parents. Florida does not require parents to own a large home or quit their jobs and become stay-at-home parents. Florida foster parents must:

  • Be 21 years of age or older
  • Prove good health and ability to care for a child
  • Maintain a stable income
  • Pass a background screening
  • Finish 30 hours of foster parent training
  • Complete a Home Study

The required training course is free to aspiring foster parents. It helps parents learn how to foster children and become licensed to provide foster care in Florida.

The manager at rhe west palm beach location was unprofessional and rude. Also, my niece went in healthy and was discharged with covid a week later. If you want a safe place for children, CHS is not the right place.
