A Safe Haven for Children and Teens in Need.

Friends of Joshua House Foundation Inc. is not just any nonprofit organization; it’s a beacon of hope for abused, abandoned, and neglected children in our community. Through innovative therapeutic approaches and a commitment to creating a family-like environment, Joshua House has become a transformative force for foster children with complex traumas.

Our impact goes beyond words – it’s seen in the countless success stories of children who have found healing, stability, and empowerment within our five homes on 11 acres. Our unique providers and programs not only address immediate needs but also nurture growth and resilience.

But we’re not alone on this journey. The community plays a vital role, and we are proud to be a part of Tampa Bay’s collective effort to support its most vulnerable citizens – its children. From distributing resources to providing solutions, Friends of Joshua House Foundation is deeply ingrained in the fabric of our local community and the progress and improvements in child welfare services.

As we reflect on the thousands of children who have passed through Joshua House, we see not just their stories of abuse and neglect but also tales of resilience and triumph. However, there is much more to be done. We invite you to learn more about Joshua House and join us in making a lasting impact. Whether through volunteering your time, donating, or simply spreading awareness, you can contribute to the ongoing mission of providing love, support, and permanency for every child in need.

Together, we can shape a future where no child is left behind, where every story begins with healing and ends with hope.
