THE FAMILY LAW SECTION of The Florida Bar during its recent Executive Council meeting presented a $75,000 contribution to The Florida Bar Foundation to enhance the reach of its statewide Children’s Legal Services grants. The Foundation’s priorities for the grants include representation of foster youth and access to special education, medical, developmental, and mental health services that are required under law. Gifts to the Foundation from the Children’s Legal Services campaign on The Florida Bar annual fee statement help support these grants, along with proceeds from the Kids Deserve Justice license plate initiative. Foundation Executive Director Bruce Blackwell accepted the donation and expressed sincere thanks for the section’s support.
