Hibiscus Children’s Center Seeking Former Youth


Treasure Coast -  Hibiscus Children’s Center is seeking former youth who have lived at the Hibiscus Shelter in Jensen Beach or Hibiscus Village in Vero Beach.  If you lived at Hibiscus Children’s Center between 1989-1999, we especially want to hear from you.  Hibiscus opened its doors in 1989, over 3,000 children and youth have been provided safe haven and services at the Shelter and Village.  If you lived at Hibiscus at any point in the past 30 years, we would welcome the opportunity to reconnect with you and learn more about your journey and how Hibiscus impacted your life.  Please feel free to visit us at either location, call us at (772) 299-6011, ext. 386 or email us at

The mission of Hibiscus is to maintain a safe shelter for children who are abused, abandoned and neglected by providing prevention, early intervention, and advocacy in quality residential, assessment and recovery programs.  Hibiscus provides residential care to children ages 12 and under at the Tilton Family Children’s Shelter and to teens ages 13-17 at the Hibiscus Village. Hibiscus specializes in the treatment of trauma-based disorders, behavioral health, infant mental health, and healing victims of sexual abuse.  Hibiscus has the only Dept. of Health sanctioned Sexual Abuse Treatment Program on the Treasure Coast and our Healing Families Program provides outpatient substance abuse treatment to parents/caregivers and children.
