I was on the board for several years from the beginning. We used to hear the horrid stories of child abuse in our community and worked hard to get the facility up and running. I was impressed that the people who worked at the facility were not just jobholders but people on a mission to provide for and protect the children. Over the course of the years many other facilities of this type in Florida have experienced problems and sometimes scandals. Not so The Florida Keys Children's Shelter. It was started out of love and concern for the children and continues to operate with love and concern for the children.

I was a member of the Board of Directories who helped build this much needed shelter. Before the shelter was in operation, our children had to be sent to the mainland Florida. This was tramatic for both the children and their loved ones. They go a great job, making a loving home for children in need.

THEY ARE ALWAYS POSITIVE IN THEIR PROBLEM SOLVING AND DO WHAT IS BEST FOR THE CHILDREN. I AM HONORED TO BE INVOLVED WITH THIS ORGANIZATION.
