Florida’s Children First, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the rights of at-risk children and youth; the organization seeks full representation of children and youth and meaningful and sustainable improvement in Florida’s child-serving systems using a range of strategies including public policy development, on-going training and technical assistance, and where necessary, strategic litigation.
For more than a decade, BoardroomPR has generated outstanding media coverage for Florida’s Children First. We worked to draw attention to the organization, as well as to highlight and focus on special events, in this case, a series of awards honoring people who have made a difference and foster children who have succeeded due to FCF efforts. Media includes:
• Report on WPLG-TV Channel 10 about the event with footage from the gala
• Letters to the editor and Op Eds across the state, including St. Petersburg Times, Sun-Sentinel, Daytona News-Journal, Florida Times Union, Sarasota Herald Tribune, Tampa Tribune, Naples Daily News, Palm Beach Post about the Department of Children’s Services.
• Articles on the event in various publications, photo essays after the event, including various legal publications such as Florida Bar News.
• Inclusion in stories on foster care in publications across the state and across the nation – note: our efforts were statewide, but we were able to generate substantial coverage in the national press, as well.
