Catalyst Consulting Services, Inc. has launched a new initiative, Catalyst 4 Change, which will highlight our client partners during this time of significant change in an effort to share stories of how these amazing nonprofits are rethinking the delivery of their mission in our community.

A Kid’s Place of Tampa Bay, Inc. is located in Brandon, Florida and provides residential program services children from birth to age 18, who have been removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment and the staff provides a variety of services which meet the social, educational, medical, and psychological needs of each child. The primary focus is to keep sibling groups together in a safe, stable, and nurturing environment until a more permanent placement can be provided.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, all 60 children residing at the facility are no longer in school 5 days a week and this requires the organization to hire additional childcare and increase food and supplies during this stressful time. In addition, re-unification visits with parents are on hold to ensure the health of the children. If you would like to ease the additional emotional distress and trauma of what the children have already experienced, please visit akidsplacetb.org
