In Key West we run a group home for children 11 through 17. This home is supervised and ran by a husband & wife team called House Parents. These children have been removed from their homes because of neglect, abuse, abandonment, or other situations. The placement is usually long term but again the length of stay is determined by the courts. Many of the kids that come into this home will live there until they turn eighteen but the goal of the program is to allow them to live like any other child would. They attend regular schools, after school activities, maintain a job if appropriate and function in the home as any other child would.
