Florida Association of Christian Child Caring Agencies, Inc.

The Florida Association of Christian Child Caring Agencies is the authority in the State of Florida for registration of children’s homes, and certain other ministries involved in the care and nurturing of young people in a Christian environment.  FACCCA operates under the provision of Florida Statute 409.176 which was instituted in 1984.  This provision allows faith-based childcare providers to elect FACCCA registration as an alternative to state licensing.  All organizations seeking FACCCA registration must comply with the regulations set forth by Florida Statute as well as the standards established by FACCCA.  Currently there are 21 registered member organizations and 2 associate members.

In order to ensure that these standards are maintained, and more importantly that every child in our care is safe and secure, the FACCCA Board of Directors and administrators work closely with each member organization to provide training, advice, supervision and support.

It is our belief and conviction that all children need the safety and security of knowing that they are loved and have a place to call home; and that they cannot flourish without a sense of belonging and permanence to give them that security.  More specifically, we believe that for children who are in need of hope and healing, merely providing for the custodial care of food and shelter is insufficient.  True transformation and life changing experience will only occur as our children begin to believe and understand the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  As they begin to experience God’s grace in their lives they will be able to extend that grace to others.  To that end, an important element in the care and nurture of all the member ministries of FACCCA is the importance of sharing the “Gospel Message” with every child in such a way that they experience God’s love for them.
