Founded in 2000 in honor of Sylvia Thomas, a champion for adoptive and foster families, the nonprofit center is focuses on serving the needs of adoptive and foster families in Hillsborough County. The group has touched the lives of more than 6,000 children and their families in that time.
“For 15 years, we have been making a difference in helping adoptive families stay together by working through issues and solving behavior problems. This includes a focus on providing badly needed support and counseling to children effected by abuse, abandonment and neglect,” according to the group’s website.
