Background Discussion

The Child Welfare Systems Advocate will provide a report to the Board of County Commissioners regarding the child welfare system and the Family Safety Alliance.

The Family Safety Alliance (FSA) is the community organization responsible for oversight of the child welfare system in the 12th Judicial Circuit (Manatee, Sarasota, and DeSoto Counties).  It is comprised of passionate and invested community stakeholders concerned with the well being of children in Circuit 12.

In 2009, the FSA elected to develop a Child Welfare Systems Advocate position to monitor the delivery of child welfare services within the three county area.  Funding to support the Systems Advocate is shared by Manatee and Sarasota Counties.
