Children’s Shelter Changing Lives…One at a Time

December 11, 2013 - Posted in Palmetto Scene by Tabitha Safdi

Since 1977, the Palmetto Place Children’s Shelter has provided over 5,800 Midland's abused and neglected children and unaccompanied teens with a safe, home-like place to go. They provide a home until an appropriate foster family is located.

“The shelter is open 24 hours each day of the year and provides medical and mental health care, crisis adjustment/transitional counseling, after-school tutoring and recreational and social activities in addition to food, clothing and shelter.”

June Falk once lived at the shelter. She recalls her childhood and how being at the shelter changed her life and made her what she is today!
