A Safe Haven for Children and Teens in Need.

Friends of Joshua House Foundation Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization of concerned individuals who have dedicated themselves to developing resources to improve the quality of life for abused, abandoned, and neglected children and teens from our community by promoting healing, growth, and empowerment. Foster care in our community is in crisis. We assist by creating a therapeutic shelter with an enriching family-like environment where children with complex traumas can heal, recover, and stabilize so that placement permanency can be provided.

Thousands of children have passed through Joshua House since it opened. Each story of abuse and neglect is as unique as the child. With five homes on 11 acres, Joshua House promotes enrichment, growth, stability, and support specific to each child’s needs. Friends of Joshua House Foundation raises resources, develops solutions, and supports Tampa Bay’s most vulnerable citizens…its children.
