A Message from Our Chair

At the Florida Alliance of Children’s Councils and Trusts, we believe Florida’s children are our most important resource – they are our future. That’s why, first and foremost, FACCT advocates for our state’s children and families. We serve as a leading voice in educating lawmakers about children’s issues and why investing in prevention and early intervention services is so critical to supporting our children and families. We want to ensure all children have every opportunity to reach their full potential, which means that they are born healthy, free from maltreatment, ready and successful in school, and supported in their homes and communities.

We know that for all of this to happen, Florida must invest in the more than four million children who call this beautiful state their home. We also know that to be successful, we must partner with local organizations and statewide leaders to ensure a policy agenda that embraces Florida’s children. Because when our children and families are healthy, safe and strong, we all benefit.
