Child abuse and neglect continue to be a serious problem in our county, state and country. Children who come from abusive family situations often have special needs because of emotional, physical and developmental delays caused by the birth mother’s abuse of alcohol or drugs, the lack of proper nutrition and the lack of nurturing or loving by caring parents.
The Haven strives to meet the needs of neglected, abused and abandoned children in Brevard County and Central Florida by assuring the highest quality of care for the children and the programs continued success.
