Why Attend

Each year, over 700 leading child welfare advocates, executives, case managers, foster parents, clinicians, and state agency employees gather to:


  • Network.
  • Find solutions to problems facing the child welfare system.
  • Present their year’s work or innovative programs to others.
  • Learn beyond their job role or title.


The Florida Coalition for Children (FCC) and its member agencies care for over 50,000 children and families each year, providing services ranging from counseling, prevention and diversion programs, foster care, adoption services and much more.

The FCC Annual Conference is not only an opportunity for our member agencies to network and learn but also a time for us to celebrate the successes we’ve had over the last year and the deserving individuals who have made them happen.

This conference is designed to inform and educate individuals who are currently working within or in support of Florida’s system of care but also is an excellent opportunity for those outside Florida’s system of care to learn about a fully implemented community-based system of care and the various public/private partnerships that make it a system of success!
