Children's Home Society of Florida
The North Central Division of Children's Home Society of Florida (CHS) opened its Tallahassee Office in 1964. The division covers eight counties including Franklin, Gadsden, Jefferson, Leon, Liberty, Madison, Taylor and Wakulla.
For more than 40 years CHS's North Central Divison, a United Way Agency, has served the Big Bend Area with programs to protect children through preserving and strengthening families. During 2006, more than 4,700 children & families received services from one or more of our many programs. North Central Division began by offering Adoption Services and has since expanded its programs to include Child Protection, Early Intervention, Family Builders, Family Connection and Tree House. Each program is designed with the mission to provide effective solutions to build and support healthy families for Florida's children.
