Services and Programs

In 2014, a summer program was started at the CPLRC, serving 10 – 14 children for seven weeks. The goals of this program were to improve upon and maintain literacy and math skills, reinforce positive behaviors and allow participation in daily physical activity. A key partner in the program, CDS Family & Behavioral Health Services, provided a full-time staff member to lead the summer program. In order to expand and strengthen the program, 2015 partners and contributors will also include the City of Gainesville Parks and Recreation, UF Family Nutrition Program, Peaceful Paths and Kids Count.


During the 2014 Christmas season, the CPLRC provided Christmas toys to children through donations from the Marine’s Toys for Tots Program and Junior League’s Miracle on Main Street event.


The CPLRC partners with the Alachua County Library District, Gainesville Housing Authority and Gainesville Police Department to provide quarterly community engagement events that promote parent-child activities, provide resource information to the community and strengthen partnerships with families in southeast Gainesville.


The CPLRC has launched a program to help parents with young children start college savings accounts for their children. This program helps parents strengthen skills in financial literacy and be their children’s first teacher in order to achieve their goals. This program is made possible by community partners and a grant from the Community Foundation of North Central Florida.

Child abuse is preventable
We can help change the lives of many children and teens.

A hallmark of PSF’s system of care is our belief that child abuse is preventable. We have found that by providing resources and supports to families in need on the front end, many can avoid reaching the crises that lead to formal child welfare involvement functions.

Monetary Donations

Monetary donations throughout the year are a huge help to the children we serve. We accept donations by check, which can be mailed to our office or through the Philanthropy Hub link here.
