Each year in Pinellas County, hundreds of parents complete the tasks necessary to make their homes safe so that they may be reunified with their children. In Pinellas County, 397 families were reunified in fiscal year 2015/2016. In fiscal year 2016/2017, 242 have been reunified as of April 30, 2017.
Reunification is truly a community success. The parents who are reunified with their children are supported in their communities by family court judges, case workers, service providers, guardians ad litem, foster parents, and relatives, among others. For the eighth year, Eckerd Community Alternatives Pinellas/Pasco will partner with the Florida Department of Children and Families, Directions for Living, Lutheran Services Florida, Personal Enrichment through Mental Health Services (PEMHS), Guardian Ad Litem Foundation of Tampa Bay, Inc., and the Guardian Ad Litem Program – Sixth Judicial Circuit to host this celebration honoring Pinellas parents who have reunified with their children and, as a result, have strengthened our communities.
