“We are so thrilled to welcome Walton to the A Kid’s Place Family,” said Virginia Johnson, A Kid’s Place CEO.  “With their assistance, we will be able to continue our mission to provide a safe, loving and nurturing environment for foster children.”

About A Kid’s Place of Tampa Bay, Inc.
A Kid’s Place is a 60-bed residential group home located in Brandon, Florida. Our purpose is to provide superior residential services to children of all ages who have been removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment.

Children separated from their parents have already experienced a great deal of trauma, but separating them from their siblings creates even more anguish. Our primary focus is to keep sibling groups together in a safe, stable, home-like environment until a more permanent placement can be provided.  In order for a child to heal from the trauma he or she has endured, love, stability, and nurturing are critical.  This is what A Kid’s Place provides.  For our latest news, visit www.akidsplacetb.org.
