Each home accommodates 6 youth between the ages of 13 – 17. Unlike most other residential providers, SailFuture has developed an in-house network of critical support services that our teens receive under one umbrella from a unified team.
Unlike most residential programs, SailFuture engages youth in comprehensive and high-impact programming designed specifically for high-risk teens.
Our comprehensive includes 60-day sailing journeys throughout the world, adventure-based mental health counseling, practical job training, and a hands-on technical high school.
Our homes are led by passionate live-in parents, who are talented professionals from unique industries and backgrounds. There are no shift staff.
To enter the program, youth are invited to in-person or FaceTime visits to learn more about the home and our adults. Youth interview us as much as we do them; it’s their choice to live here.

Hunter Thompson, Residential Program Director
We're always looking for qualify and compassionate adults to help serve the children in our community.
A more recent project is SailFuture Academy, a St. Petersburg foster care agency that is opening a vocational high school this fall for lower-income who have become disengaged in traditional high school settings.
The program will focus on giving students career skills in a real-life environment.

SailFuture serves teens throughout the St. Petersburg community, and with the purchase and recent redevelopment of the historic Norwood Elementary School, the innovative organization is better equipped to prepare kids for success as adults.
