DCF TO HOLD PUBLIC MEETINGS TO DISCUSS CHILD WELFARE SERVICES
IN DUVAL, NASSAU COUNTIES

The Florida Department of Children and Families will hold two public meetings to discuss the state of the child welfare system, including foster care and adoptions, in Duval and Nassau counties. These meetings are part of a standard and ongoing process to gather information in preparation for a future release of an Invitation to Negotiate for the DCF contract for adoption and foster care services in these two counties.

At these meetings, there will be a review of what is currently working in the child welfare system, gaps in services that will need to be filled, and critical areas where improvement is needed.

Here are the dates and times of these meetings.
