The A. B. and Jessie Polinsky Children’s Center opened in 1994. Promises2Kids is a 6-acre facility which is the County’s only short-term emergency shelter for children and now a national model for the protection and care of abused and neglected children. The average length of stay is 7 days. The campus is county operated and includes six residential cottages, an infant nursery, medical clinic, school, library, cafeteria, gymnasium, 2 swimming pools, 2 playgrounds, and an outdoor athletic field. Promises2Kids provides funding to support direct services to youth at the center. Over 1000 children are cared for annually at the Polinsky Children's Center. We will be putting together Welcome Kits for the children who are brought in to this youth emergency center.
