Children's Services

Children's Services

The voters of Manatee County feels it is a responsibility to provide for the operation of continuing programs in order to ensure the health, welfare and safety of Manatee County's children through 17 years of age. A thirteen member Advisory Board was appointed by the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners to study the conditions of the children of Manatee County and to provide recommendations. From this came an initiative to study, plan, and provide funding and programs for abused, neglected, at-risk and economically disadvantaged children. read on Children's Services
