Kids First of Florida (KFF) is a community-based care lead agency contracted with the Department of Children and Families providing child welfare and foster care services to the residents of Clay County.

Kids First of Florida is a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization. In 2008, after redistricting by the Department of Children and Families, KFF’s target area was narrowed to focus only on the residents of Clay County, and the Board of the agency chose the new name to reflect our commitment to putting kids first.

Kids First of Florida works with families whose children are either at risk of abuse or neglect or who have already been victims of abuse or neglect.

KFF is responsible for finding and funding placements for every child in foster care, including specialized therapeutic treatment programs.

Kids First of Florida does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations.
