The state of Florida values young people and therefore has created safe pathways to help increase overall quality of life and education of children. The Florida Network of Youth and Family Services, Inc. includes agencies that serve lockouts/homeless, runaway, and troubled youth ages 10 to 17, as well as their families. Many nonprofits exist in Florida that are focused on keeping the youth safe and in a healthy environment, such as the Boys & Girls Club, which offer free childcare for those who qualify and the Department of Child and Families, which offers assistance to protect children from endangerment and mistreatment.
