As of August 2017*, over 1,000 children in the Treasure Coast were unable to remain in their homes due to abuse, neglect, exploitation and trafficking. In January 2015, to meet the needs of the community, Place of Hope Treasure Coast launched and is now the fastest growing foster care agency in the region, providing loving homes for children and youth in Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties.
In less than three years, Place of Hope Treasure Coast has cared for over 140 children and youth, placing them into stable and loving foster families; has witnessed 16 adoptions; and has licensed over 50 high-quality foster families!
Our One Life Campaign empowers the community to take action. The number of children being removed from their homes is increasing every day. As the demand for quality family care intensifies, so does our need for your support. Together, we are meeting the physical, emotional and developmental needs of the children and youth entrusted in our care.
