Santa Rosa Kid's House

The Santa Rosa Kids’ House is a Child Advocacy Center serving Santa Rosa County, in Milton, Florida. In 2003, a group of committed child advocates and Multidisciplinary Team members in Santa Rosa County joined forces to work towards creating a more collaborative response to child abuse and neglect for our county. In 2004, Santa Rosa Kids’ House, Inc. was registered as a corporation and was granted 501©3 non-profit status. In 2005, local business man, Howard Burris, bought property and donated one million dollars towards the construction of the building. In October 2006, the board hired an interim Executive Director, Hank Shirah, to oversee the construction of the building and promote the project. Through 2007 and the first quarter of 2008, with a great deal of community contributions and additional fundraising events, the construction of the Santa Rosa Kids’ House was completed using state of the art equipment.
