With more than three million cases of abuse reported each year, child abuse is the nation’s leading cause of death for children under the age of three. Right here in Florida, more than one in every 27 children is abused or neglected. That’s an appalling statistic and a number we work to battle every day at Kids in Distress (KID).
We are a nationally-accredited, community-supported agency based in South Florida, specializing in the fundamental care and support of vulnerable children and their families in Broward and Palm Beach counties.
The family support services we provide are designed to help prevent and treat child abuse, while also offering care and support services that aid and preserve the family structure. We do this by tackling the difficult issues that can lead to abuse and neglect like substance abuse, domestic violence, juvenile delinquency, teen pregnancy, school dropout and family conflict, among others.
