Coronavirus Resources for Kids and Adults

We at the Children's Services Council of Broward County care about the health and safety of our community, staff, and providers. Accordingly, in an effort to help control the spread of the COVID-19, our building is closed to the public until further notice. As staff works remotely, please be assured that we will continue to work diligently in support of the children and families of Broward and the child serving community. Please search this website and our social media platforms @cscbroward for continuous updates as well as resources and information that help our community more easily navigate these challenging times. If you need to reach us, call (954) 377-1000 or e-mail: info@cscbroward.org.  (Please note that many of these links will point away from the CSC’s website to pages not necessarily affiliated with or endorsed by CSC Broward. The CSC cannot guarantee ADA compliance of the non-affiliated site.)
