Our Kids creates safe havens for children and families through foster care and adoption. Our Kids of Miami-Dade/Monroe, Inc. was established in 2002 and began providing services in 2005. Our Kids is the nonprofit Community Based Care (CBC) agency overseeing Miami-Dade and Monroe counties. We provide a comprehensive range of foster care and adoption services, including those that were previously performed by the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF), such as prevention, case management, adoption, independent living services for transitioning foster care youth, and many other related programs. Our Kids mission is to oversee and lead a coordinated system of care in order to deliver excellence to abused, abandoned, and neglected children and their families in Miami-Dade and the Florida Keys. Our Kids vision is that every at-risk child in Miami-Dade and Monroe will grow up with a safe, loving, nurturing, permanent family.
Benjamin is waiting to be adopted! Like most boys his age, Benjamin has a very healthy appetite, and he can name off quite a few favorites: burgers, pizza, spaghetti and meatballs, and corn on the cob, always topped off with a heaping bowl of ice cream for dessert.
