Our seventh annual Florida Faith Symposium was a huge success.
The Faith Symposium connects conference attendees to resources, best practices, and training to enhance faith and community-based programs that serve youth and struggling families. This event is hosted annually by the Florida Department of Children and Families and the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice, in partnership with the Florida Faith-Based and Community-Based Advisory Council and other statewide partners.
This year's event featured a variety of special guests including speakers and musical performers. Throughout the conference, there were more than 35 educational sessions and exhibit booths. There were also many sponsors who helped make this event a great success. Thank You All!
Champions of Hope awards were presented to exceptional faith-based organizations for their outstanding commitment to strengthening Florida's families. Nominees were recognized for their passion and efforts to the host agencies’ missions. These awards were presented by the Florida Faith-Based and Community-Based Advisory Council, in partnership with the Department of Children and Families and Department of Juvenile Justice. Congratulations!
