Florida Legislators make the right choice to help children of incarcerated parents

The Florida Legislature heard our plea on behalf of children of incarcerated parents in Broward County.  Thanks to renewed funding from the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ), Big Brothers Big Sisters of Broward County now can serve an additional 70 children who face more adversity than a person should see in a lifetime.  We’re very grateful to be able to provide strong and enduring, professionally supported, one-to-one mentoring relationships to this extremely vulnerable group of kids.  We know – and independent research proves out – that mentoring will result in a powerful, positive change that will define these children for a lifetime.  Many thanks to our legislators for doing the right thing.

     — Ana M. Cedeno, President and CEO, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Broward County
