We are currently in the process of fundraising for our new youth shelter in Gainesville. Built in the 1950s and procured by us in 1990, our original shelter building has been a home, a dentist's office, and finally, our shelter. It is time to retire and update! 

CDS Family & Behavioral Health Services, Inc. is a private 501(c)(3) non-profit social services agency that needs your help in order to continue providing its valuable services to the community. Contributions are tax deductible and vital to our ongoing success. Both monetary and in-kind donations are very much appreciated.
