The Florida Institute for Child Welfare seeks to promote safety, permanency, and well-being among the children and families of Florida that are involved with the child welfare system.
The workforce is a child welfare program's most important asset and a community's link to improved outcomes for children, youth, and families. We know that our workers have limited time—that's why we will be posting convenient, free ways to continue professional development. During the month of September, all our social media posts will be child welfare workforce-related resources, and we hope you'll share those resources with your colleagues, staff, and/or students. Here is an infographic on the Institute's work and the work of our affiliates!
