KID HOMEBUILDERS® is an internationally recognized evidence-based program designed to strengthen families in order to prevent out-of-home child placements. KID HOMEBUILDERS® families have children in imminent danger of removal due to child abuse, neglect, family conflict, juvenile delinquency, or other factors. Due to its intensive nature, KID HOMEBUILDERS® serves a maximum of 90 families annually.

All families must be referred by Broward Sheriff’s Office Child Protective Services.

Kinship Support Services are provided throughout Broward County to extended family members or friends who have taken on the care and custody of someone else’s child. Many of these family members and friends were either given or took responsibility of the children with little notice, and have limited financial or support resources. Since many do not have legal custodial rights, their ability to access medical care, public benefits, social services, childcare, legal aid, and other information essential to the well-being of the children is limited. The KID Kinship Team serves children from birth to 18, or up to age 22 if they have special needs. The program works with the entire family group, not just the children, to meet the needs of the family.
