The President/CEO of FKCS has provided inspired and highly informed leadership to the youth work services field at the local, state, regional and national levels. Not only does FKCS provide an essential anchor for services to vulnerable youth and families, but staff also contribute to the development and effectiveness of the youth services field at large.

I have had the pleasure of working with the Florida Keys Children's Shelter through the eyes of State Government. While the environment, in terms of funding, isn't always the greatest, staff is always quick to offer suggestions for alternatives and is good on alerting the office of issues. We are blessed to have the Florida Keys Children's Shelter in our community to serve those constituent's are are most vulnerable, our children.

FKCS has been an outstanding partner working with Lutheran Services Florida to provide seamless continuity of care for troubled youth that we both serve. The staff at FKCS has always been responsive and professional in our dealings with them. They have been providing beneficial services for children and families for over a decade. They know their business and have a deep compassion and committment to children and families. Patricia L. Leonard, LCSW Regional Director, LSF/SW
