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.”
