Florida's Children First

FREE TRAINING: What’s at Stake? Master the Complexities of Independent Living Benefit

Florida offers a variety of assistance to young adults who were formerly in Florida’s child welfare system.  The eligibility requirements vary by program, and small changes in a teen’s status can have a big impact on their eligibility for future assistance.  This training will review the benefits, the eligibility requirements, and advocacy strategies for helping young people get off on the best foot possible.

Members of Florida Youth SHINE will share their experiences in navigating through the laws and offer suggestions on how supportive adults can help them.

 

Who Should Attend: attorneys who represent children, other attorneys, caseworkers, GALS, and anyone interested in ensuring that young people have a say in their future.

  

ATTORNEYS WHO REPRESENT CHILDREN WILL RECEIVE PRIORITY IN REGISTRATION
