Hi Res Checkmark

We need caring citizens from our community to volunteer one week day per month reviewing cases of children in foster care and making recommendations to the Juvenile Court. Training is provided. Although the opportunity is generally on site at the Miami-Dade County Children's Court House, the reviews are currently held remotely.

Your time and attention as a volunteer with Florida Foster Care Review means that you can directly impact the life of a child or teen in foster care.

Please make sure to leave your name, phone number & e-mail address and one of our staff members will reach out to you shortly.

About Foster Care Review, Inc.

Location:

155 NW 3rd Street, Suite 4338, Miami, FL 33128, US

Mission Statement

Florida Foster Care Review promotes the safety, well-being and long-term success of abused and neglected children through volunteer-driven case reviews and system level advocacy. We envision a child welfare system that protects, heals and supports success for children, youth and young adults and their families.

Description

Florida Foster Care Review (FFCR) recruits, trains and supervises volunteers who participate in monthly Citizen Review Panels that review cases of youth in foster care to ensure they are safe and receiving needed services. The panels submit recommendations to the Juvenile Dependency Court, which then become binding judicial orders. Together with child welfare professionals, FFCR also works to ensure that children and youth leaving the foster care system have someone they can call family. Through all its programs, FFCR not only promotes positive results at the individual level, but also tracks and analyzes outcomes in order to advocate for system changes that improve children’s lives.
