For Hometown News

MARTIN COUNTY - Palm City based-nonprofit children's counseling center Tykes and Tykes has suffered devastating flood damage as a result of Tropical Storm Isaac.

The agency, which provides counseling for children and teens coping with domestic violence, sexual abuse, depression, substance abuse and more, is in need of donations to replace office furniture, office supplies, and therapeutic supplies, none of which are covered by insurance.

The agency was forced to completely vacate the building at 3577 S.W. Corporate Parkway in Palm City, while extensive repairs are made to the damaged drywall and carpeting. The agency hopes to find temporary space to serve the more than 500 children in crisis that they are currently treating.

The agency has temporarily relocated its offices to 759 S.E. Federal Highway, suite 100 in Stuart while the estimated $100,000 of flood damage is repaired. Clients will be seen at the new location until further notice. The phone number, (772) 220-3439 will remain the same.

To help, call (772) 285-8411, or visit www.tykesandteens.org to make a financial donation online.
