By Elena Hoyos, Administrative Services Director, The Village South
On September 27th, leadership from The Village South had the opportunity to host the Florida Department of Children and Families’ (DCF) Secretary, Shevaun Harris and Assistant Secretary, Erica Floyd-Thomas as well as Broward County Commissioner, Nan Rich, and regional leadership from our management entity, the Broward Behavioral Health Coalition (BBHC) and the DCF. Frank Rabbito, Chief Operating Officer (COO) for WestCare Foundation and Danny Blanco, Vice President of The Village South, led a tour of the residential facility, their state-of-the-art childcare program and gave a presentation on the wide array of services that The Village South has to offer in South Florida.
Together, they highlighted The Village South’s success and the challenges that they’ve faced when trying to increase the operational capacity of their women and children’s residential programs to other counties in Florida.
We are thankful to our partners with the DCF and Broward County for the opportunity to showcase the great work that our staff does on a daily basis to serve the South Florida community and fulfill our mission of Uplifting the Human Spirit!
