This one-day conference brings together parents, volunteers and professionals concerned with the welfare of children and families.“Close to 900 children enter the Foster-Care system in Florida each month. If we want to change that number and make an impact, we need to work with the parents,” stated Sandy Munoz, CEO of The Children’s Healing Institute.
