Children’s Home Society

    Children’s Home Society of Florida – Mid-Florida

    Did you know…. In 1902, Children’s Home Society of Florida was lead by Marcus Fagg. The children nicknamed him Daddy Fagg.

    Under the leadership of Reverend D.W. Comstock, Children’s Home Society of Florida was established in Jacksonville on November 17, 1902. With a staff of two, we found homes for 21 children our initial year, operating with a budget of $400. Less than a decade later, Marcus “Daddy” Fagg became State Superintendent, guiding us toward our unwavering leadership in the child welfare arena.

    Daddy Fagg, an astute businessman, rightfully earned his nickname through his heartfelt devotion to abandoned and orphaned children. He took them under his wing, tending to children’s needs, rocking babies and mending broken souls. But he also knew how to touch the hearts of others. By 1947, we had a staff of 54 and had cared for more than 53,000 kids.
