Kids In Distress (KID) is a nationally accredited agency dedicated to the prevention of child abuse, the preservation of the family, and the treatment of abused and neglected children.  Founded in 1979, KID started as a shelter for abused and neglected children.  During its 40 operational years, KID has grown to include two campuses in Broward County, and a foster care office in Palm Beach County, and in January of 2019, acquired Family Central, Inc. (FCI) which provides comprehensive family strengthening, early learning, a child care food program, and educational training services in South Florida.  KID offers a well-integrated system of care staffed with clinical professionals who tenaciously strive to encourage, educate, empower, and equip children and families with the proper tools to ensure a safe and stronger community.

KID is an equal opportunity employer and an advocate for all our families. For more information on our assistance to persons with disabilities, we invite you to read our KID 2019 Auxiliary Aids Plan.
