Our Mission
The mission of the Children’s Services Council and the reason for its existence is to improve the quality of life for all children in St. Lucie County.
We do this by ensuring that every baby is a healthy baby, by stopping child abuse before it starts, keeping kids off the streets and away from drugs and alcohol, and keeping kids in school with the tools they need to be successful.


Our Organizational Values

Effective organizations identify and develop clear and concise organizational values. Once defined, values impact every aspect of an organization and are modeled by staff and board members.


We are dedicated to the well-being of children in our community and the positive role that families and caring adults play in the lives of children.

We succeed by working together toward a shared vision and common goals.

We believe that by fostering effective community partnerships, we broaden and strengthen the services to children and families.

We pursue our mission with honesty, trustworthiness, and a high ethical standard.

We are responsible for the effective utilization of taxpayer dollars.

We strive for excellence in our work.

We acknowledge the dignity and worth of each person by recognizing their diversity, opinions, and needs.

Code of Ethics
