Florida Faith-Based and Community-Based Advisory Council: Child Welfare Workgroup

The Child Welfare Workgroup, led by Mr. Roland Gonzalez, will focus on advancing efforts to enhance and improve the welfare of children through the identification of best practices and innovative programs and services on topics to include prevention of child maltreatment, foster care, adoption, independent living, human trafficking, health and well-being, youth with disabilities, and education. The workgroup will bring together state agency liaisons and various faith-based and community-based organizations to identify needs, gaps in services, and propose solutions in order to facilitate a more collaborative and coordinated approach to working with state government agencies. In addition, the workgroup will coordinate with other Advisory Council workgroups and work to provide recommendations to refine, improve, and strengthen policies and legislation governing child welfare issues and affecting faith-based and community-based organizations.
