See The Story at The Howard Phillips Center for Children & Families

The Central Florida area is a vibrant, thriving set of communities. But children and families in our neighborhoods still face challenges, such as child abuse, sexual trauma, developmental disabilities and lack of access to medical care. The Howard Phillips Center for Children & Families – part of Arnold Palmer Medical Center –  helps combat these obstacles by delivering children and family services to support and advocate for those at risk.

Chances are you’ve driven by this brightly colored building on Michigan Street many times. But do you know about the impactful work that takes place inside?

The Howard Phillips Center provides dignity and healing for children and families who face overwhelming challenges like child abuse, developmental delays and lack of access to medical care. We provide children and families a support system and resources so they don’t have to face overwhelming challenges alone.

The services of identification, treatment and prevention provided at The Howard Phillips Center help children, heal families and strengthen our community. The programs offered include: The Children’s Advocacy Center, The Child Protection Team, The Healing Tree, Teen Xpress, Healthy Families Orange and Osceola as well as The Developmental Center for Infants & Children/Early Steps.

Every child deserves dignity and respect. From parents to community members, caregivers to friends, we all have a responsibility to ensure our youngest generation is advocated for and protected from child abuse, sexual trauma, developmental disabilities and a lack of access to medical care.

Donations to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals are unrestricted and support the areas of greatest need for our hospital, including funding programs at The Howard Phillips Center like those listed above.
