Representing Florida's abused, neglected and abandoned children in the court and community

Serving Franklin, Gadsden, Jefferson, Leon, Liberty, and Wakulla counties in the Big Bend region, our office is part of a statewide coalition of volunteers, community supporters, and professional staff advocating for the best interests of abused and neglected children in Florida.
