The Children's Services Council headquarters is located on the northeast corner of Gateway Boulevard. and High Ridge Road.  It is in close proximity to Interstate 95 and shares an access road with TriRail – a tri-county commuter rail system.

The Children's Services Council of Palm Beach County welcomed the opportunity to utilize the Art in Public Places to complement it's new facility, even though they were not subject to the Public Art Ordinance 07-002.  Through the assistance the Boynton Beach Arts Commission and the Public Art Administrator, the Children's Service Council commissioned a custom public art sculpture to compliment their headquarters.

George Gadson's "In Celebration of Children and Families" offers a symbol of the Children's Services Council's commitment to our county's children.  It further stands as a reminder of the site's natural beauty and commitment to preserving the natural preserves and habitat to the east and west of the building.  George's creations complement the building's contemporary design, while paying tribute to the fabric and foundation of the community –their children and their families.
