Embrace Families, Inc.

At Embrace Families, we believe all kids deserve to grow up in safe, stable, loving homes with a path to a bright future. That’s why we work to find solutions that put the child’s well-being first.
As our region’s lead child welfare agency, we work to strengthen families and the community in which they live. We begin by helping Central Florida families overcome the root causes of abuse and neglect through programs that offer case management and other prevention services. When a child can’t remain safely in their home, we support them through foster care, adoption, mentoring and beyond to ensure that children in bad situations move toward brighter futures.
