About Us

The Children's Services Council of Broward County (CSC) is an independent taxing authority established by voter referendum in 2000 and reauthorized in 2014. The CSC's mission is to provide leadership, advocacy, and resources necessary to enhance the lives of the children of Broward County and empower them to become responsible, productive adults through collaborative planning and funding of a continuum of quality care.

The Faces of CSC
