Nathanial and Jon became a host family to inspire and encourage future leaders. This is a great example of how we can develop our future leaders. Children's Home Society of Florida has been facilitating placement of our amazing young people with families in Tallahassee as they serve as Senate pages in the Florida Legislature. Jon and Nathanial share how their experience shaped them, and just how they are shaping the leaders of tomorrow. #Wedogood because we have incredible volunteers.
With 231 team members and more than 6,500 CHS children and families in HurricaneMichael's path, we have been more on the GO than usual. But we still have work to do. Our team members have moved into our mobile command center and Do Gooders across the state are pitching in. Thank you to all who have helped so far!
