A Kids Place is a unique non-profit organization in Tampa providing foster care and a loving home for abused, neglected, or abandoned children. It has been around for the past nine years, helping kids from newborns all the way up to age 18. They have helped almost 600 families since their opening, and with the help from the community, they have a great future ahead of them as well.
They are currently taking care of 1,300 kids across their five homes in Brandon. Each of these houses has caregivers to give the kids a family lifestyle feeling, as it’s extremely important for the kids to feel loved and cared for while they are staying there.
A Kid’s Place goal is for each child to be provided an enriching experience that will instill hope, encourage growth, and allow for continued healing in a nurturing environment. This is made possible with our community partners as they help A Kid’s Place offer sibling togetherness, a loving, family-like environment, coordination of services, on-site therapy services, targeted case management to support children and their families, on-site dental services, educational services, and on-site pre-kindergarten and toddler programs.
Events like the Pirate Plunge Carnival allow kids to get out and have some fun with people from the community. It also allows the community to see how special this organization is and how the kids are positively impacted.
We hope to continue to be a part of the journey in helping them impact the lives of so many children. A huge thank you to A Kid’s Place for letting us be a part of you Pirate Plunge Carnival, and we hope everyone who came had a great time!
