Children In Crisis is blessed to have amazing house parents to care for the children living at the Children’s Neighborhood. These individuals live on campus with the more than 50 children currently in their care.

They give up their homes and their main job is to care for and love these foster children, and they do an amazing job. The relationships that are bonded last long after the children are reunited with their families or adopted.

Therefore, we are always looking for outlets to strengthen those bonds. One of the ways we will accomplish this is putting our house “Dad’s” through a program called “Raising a Modern Day Knight." These workbooks inspire and encourage men to connect with their sons. This will help our House Dad’s be stronger role models for the troubled young men that would have no male figures in their lives without them, even if reunified with their parents, a father still may not be in the picture.

The program is made possible in part by a grant from The Grace Foundation of Destin and we thank them for their continued and constant support of our mission to provide a home to the abused, abandoned and neglected children of Okaloosa, Walton, Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties in Northwest Florida.

The mission of Children in Crisis is "Providing Homes and Establishing Hope" for the abused, neglected and abandoned children of our community. The Children's Neighborhood provides an emergency shelter for young children, and the group foster homes help with the severe shortage of foster homes in our community. Together, we can make a difference in the life of a child.
