Welcome to His House Children's Home
His House Children’s Home is a private, non-profit, faith-based organization dedicated to restoring the joy in the lives of children from newborn to 18 years of age, and those who have transitioned out of the foster care system. Established in 1989, the organization provides residential care for abused, neglected and drug-exposed children in a home-like setting. The agency is licensed by the Florida Department of Children & Families, contracted by Our Kids of Miami-Dade/Monroe, Inc. and in Broward County ChildNet, Inc. as a residential program and child-placement agency. As such, the organization is a frontline provider of residential services when an abused child comes into a foster care system. Recognized and accredited by the national Council on Accreditation (COA), its model is unlike other residential programs. Each of the homes is occupied by six to twelve children and staffed with loving house parents and supportive caregivers. They make every effort to create a beautiful, cozy and safe haven where there is family unity and comfort.
His House is committed to breaking the cycle of abuse, while meeting the emotional, medical, educational and social needs of the child. The organization provides programs and services ranging from residential care, foster and adoption placement, in-house counseling, the His House Academy, tutoring, in addition to weekly enrichment activities such as art, music, athletics, drama and music production. Since its inception, His House has restored the joy in the lives of over 6,000 children.
In 2008, the agency opened the His House International program, providing residential care and case management to Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) from the Central American countries varying from Guatemala and Mexico to other countries of the world. The agency was also selected as the United States reception center to receive and care for orphan children of Haiti. Abused children need a place to call home during this turbulent time in their lives. His House Children’s Home is a healing place that gives wounded children a warm, loving home and renewed hope for a brighter future.
