“Chad learned every boy’s name and then during the game he made sure every boy caught a pass. It was a blessing for us and emotional for the parents of the boys watching the game. There are times in life when you get to see people use what they have to bless ‘the least of these’ and Chad did just that. We got to see it that day.” – Dr. Bob Barnes

Sheridan House has been serving south Florida since 1968 providing necessary services to help children and families at their point of need. Sheridan House provides Answers for Today’s Family.

The Ministries of Sheridan House Seminars & Speaking Events: This past year an additional 103,050 people attended seminars and speaking and events with the primary focus most often on family, marriage and parenting. Parenting On Purpose: Through our ParentingOnPurpose.org blog, radio broadcasts and seminars we offer parents practical advice on how to raise respectful and responsible children in today’s society. Well over 100,000 people log on to ParentingOnPurpose.org each year to download free content.

Counseling Centers: Sheridan House’s two counseling centers provide professional services to couples, families, children and individuals who are searching for answers for a variety of needs including: marriage & premarital counseling, parental counseling, individual therapy and psychological assessment. Many people with emotional difficulties such as depression, abuse, family needs or divorce turn to Sheridan House. Through a Biblical approach, our licensed counselors respond to each person’s needs with love, honesty, respect and integrity. We are truly unique and use a sliding scale for fees for those who require assistance to make sure financial concerns never hinder anyone from making the important decision to allow us to help. Between 3,500 and 4,000 people receive assistance each year. Single Moms’ Ministry: Living on the edge is a constant reality for single moms. Whether the problems are financial, parental, spiritual or emotional, the edge is closer and more dangerous for single moms than any other kind of family unit. Sheridan House helps to take the edge off. What makes us different is that we offer a hand-up not a hand-out. By working with the local church, we offer food, clothing, furniture, and when available financial assistance and automobiles. But to receive ongoing assistance there has to be a commitment to attend seminars designed to train and equip. Every year, well over 2000 single Mom’s and their children are helped by Sheridan House. Children’s Homes: Sheridan House was established in 1968 by Pastor Bill Billingsley as a home for boys who were having family, school or behavior problems. Our boys’ homes provide a family environment that teaches relationship skills and personal responsibility. Sheridan House for girls was established in 1986. Each home consists of up to nine boys or girls, specially trained house parents and a behavioral specialist. At the present time we have five children’s homes.

By becoming a monthly supporter you or your business can partner with us to change lives and supply Answers for Today’s Family. (954) 583-1552 • SheridanHouse.org
