MIAMI, FL - The Christian Family Coalition (CFC), Florida's premier pro-Family, human and civil rights organization, applauds Florida Governor Rick Scott's choice of David Wilkins as the new Secretary of the state Department of Children & Families (DCF). Florida's new social services chief is a proven community-based care leader with common-sense values, a commitment to genuine reform, and vast problem-solving experience.
Wilkins has served as finance chief of the Florida Baptist Children's Home, a prestigious social service organization with a long history caring for some of the state's neediest and most vulnerable citizens: abandoned, abused, disadvantaged and orphaned children, and developmentally disabled adults.
"The people of Florida will benefit greatly from Gov. Scott's selection of David Wilkins as DCF Secretary. In these uncertain economic times, when an increasing number of families are sliding into poverty and so many of our children are at risk, DCF is getting an effective leader with the commitment and the will to improve things at this long-troubled child and family welfare agency," states Anthony Verdugo, CFC Founder and Executive Director. "We will assist and support the new Secretary in every way can," he adds.
