Our Programs

Our purpose at A Kidís Place is to provide superior residential services to children of all ages who have been removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect or abandonment.  Specializing in sibling groups, we allow brothers and sisters to be placed together and begin healing in the comfort and safety of each other.  We provide a variety of services which meet the social, educational, medical and psychological needs of the child.

Description of Services

Medical

While in the care of A Kidís Place, children are provided complete medical services, from well-child exams and immunizations to treatment of minor childhood colds and flu bugs. Specialty appointments and treatments are also provided as needed.

 

Dental

Thanks to the support of Suncoast Dental and their mobile clinic, each child receives an evaluation and dental cleaning on-site at A Kid's Place.  Children receive the dental care they deserve in the well-appointed mobile clinic staffed by caring professionals. 

Behavioral Therapy

Counseling provided by Bay Area Behavioral Services helps many of our children deal with past trauma, helping them to begin healing and move forward. 


Education Overview

From the alphabet to numbers, science to imaginative play, our toddlers and pre-schoolers are steeped in fun and learning, blossoming as they are stimulated both educationally and socially.

The Hillsborough County Classroom at A Kidís Place is a place where children in grades Kindergarten through 5th can be given the extra attention they deserve in order to catch up with their classmates at grade level.


Independent Living Program

Each child age 13 and older is given the opportunity to learn Independent Living Skills in an effort to better prepare him or her for teenage years and ultimately for independence.  Combined with our Youth in Action program, these young adults are given opportunities to learn and grow in a safe and nurturing setting.
