CHILDREN'S HOME SOCIETY
Building bridges to success for children.
A world where children realize their full potential.
We believe in the potential of every child and family. We believe children and families are stronger than the odds stacked against them – and, together, we can create opportunities that bring brighter futures.
Life can be hard, and no child, no family should face the tough times alone.
CHS delivers the right services at the right time to help children and families through the most difficult times of their lives. We work to help keep more kids safe at home with their families, giving parents confidence and opportunities to build upon their strengths, and empowering them to raise their children in healthy, nurturing homes.
RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE OF JACKSONVILLE
WHAT WE DO
Ronald McDonald House provides access to healthcare to a vulnerable population by providing lodging so families can be close to a hospital.

Ronald McDonald House impacts more than 1,200 families a year, alleviating the tremendous financial burden for more than 5,000 guests that include parents, grandparents, patients and siblings.

First Coast No More Homeless Pets
The mission of First Coast No More Homeless Pets is to make veterinary care affordable and accessible to all as we save lives by keeping dogs and cats in homes and out of shelters, provide low-cost spay/neuter services with emphasis on feral/community cats, and deliver a broad range of related programs and services.
What We Do
We operate the largest spay/neuter clinic in the country with more than 20,000 surgeries a year targeting the animals that are most at risk of straining our partner shelters.
First Coast No More Homeless Pets helps people and their pets with affordable, accessible veterinary care through our sustainable industry-leading programs, services and solutions. We are not a shelter; we make shelters stronger with a broad range of comprehensive programs like our Pet Food Bank, large-scale adoption events, and through low-cost or no-cost spay neuter programs.
FCNMHP helps keep pets in homes by ensuring that any pet owner can afford to spay/neuter their pets and get medical care that is less expensive than other veterinary hospitals and clinics. By keeping veterinary costs affordable, we reduce shelter relinquishment and achieve our mission.
In 2008, FCNMHP partnered with the Jacksonville, FL public shelter to sterilize feral cats and release them back into their territory (Trap-Neuter-Return). Not only does this program save more than 8,000 annually, but it is the most responsible and cost effective way to manage the feral cat population and has become a national model.
Some neighbors can scarcely afford to feed themselves, let alone their beloved pets. Thanks to this volunteer-driven program, we help make it easier for people to keep pets in homes and out of shelters. The FCNMHP Jacksonville Pet Food Bank has distributed over 1.8 million pounds of food since it was started in 2012.
