Department Initiatives

The Florida Department of Children and Families is committed to its mission of protecting the vulnerable, promoting strong and economically self-sufficient families, and advancing personal and family recovery.

Over recent years, the professional and caring people of the Department of Children and Families, along with our partners, have substantially improved the social services system in Florida.

Toward our goal of improving what we do and becoming the best social service agency in the nation, the Department has implemented a number of special initiatives that focus on a wide range of critical issues relating to our mission.
