Youth served in Florida
Youth Villages expanded into Florida in 2008 after the state received a Title IVE waiver from the federal Department of Health and Human Services. This waiver allows Florida’s children welfare department the flexibility to utilize its main funding streams to serve more children in community/home-based settings as opposed to traditional foster care or other out-of-home placements.
