Transitional Independent Living (TIL)

Brown's Harbor, a wholly owned subsidiary of Children's Harbor is located at the Howard C Forman Campus in Pembroke Pines; a unique housing program for transitioning youths ages 18-23. Brown's Harbor evolved from an extraordinary collaboration between partners who are all focused on one goal - to help foster youths bridge the gap from dependence to independence. The City of Pembroke Pines, the Selfless Love Foundation, and Children's Harbor, a nationally accredited child welfare agency, came together to provide housing and supportive services to foster youth ages 18-23 years old. Interested applicants must age out of the foster care system or relative/non-relative placement and be residents of Broward, Dade or Palm Beach counties.


The program serves youths who qualify for State of Florida Road to Independence Scholarship (RTI) or have stable employment prior to entering the program and maintain full-time employment.


Amenities include a computer lab, recreation room, billiard table, basketball court, children’s playroom, washer / dryer, and dishwasher in each apartment.


The residences are located on the Howard C. Forman Human Services Campus on University Drive between Pines Blvd. & Pembroke Road in Pembroke Pines.


This program is generously underwritten by the City of Pembroke Pines and the Florida Department of Children and Families. 1-800-955-8771 (TTY)
