Virtual roundtable to discuss child welfare


Dear Community Stakeholders of Okeechobee and the Treasure Coast,

Governor DeSantis, Florida’s First Lady, Casey DeSantis, and DCF Secretary, Chad Poppell have been working tirelessly to develop tools and strategies that will enhance our faith community’s response to child welfare throughout the state. Virtual roundtable events have been launched statewide to kick off the initiative and engage our individual communities.

Please join faith leaders and child welfare professionals for An Act of Good Faith, for the Okeechobee and Treasure Coast virtual roundtable event on Jan. 21 from 10 to 10:45 a.m. Florida leaders in the foster care and adoptive arenas will share information on several major announcements that will enhance the child welfare system and help move vulnerable children and families out of crisis. There will be inspiring messages from First Lady Casey DeSantis, Coach Tony Dungy of All Pro Dads and Secretary Chad Poppell, along with some other exciting surprises.

Through an array of innovative and targeted tools, faith and community organizations will have the resources necessary to meaningfully engage in carrying out their missions of helping those in need. If there is one thing we can all agree on, it’s that every child deserves a safe home and a loving family.
