Hacienda Girls Ranch, operating under the auspices of Children’s Home Society
of Florida, provides a safe haven for 15 abused, neglected and/or abandoned girls
ages 12-17. Individual shelter for children in need is also provided through foster

have aged out of the foster care system, we offer a Transitional Living Program to
help them begin their adult lives and learn to be independent.
