At Manatee Children’s Services, we are dedicated to breaking the cycle of child abuse. We have a three part strategy to helping children in our community: prevention, intervention, and treatment.
Our prevention programs are designed to work in the greater community to end child abuse before it ever happens. These programs empower children & youth to protect themselves and seek help when needed. They also strengthen families through education, advocacy and support.
Our intervention programs provide critical medical and social assessment services, to determine if child abuse has occurred, partnering with law enforcement as needed and providing shelter and basic necessities to children that cannot reside with their families.
