Welcome to JusticeWorks FL!

This past year, our President and CEO, Dan Heit, was invited to Hillsborough County in the Sunshine State of Florida, to discuss needed services for the public school system. The School District of Hillsborough County is one of the largest school districts in the United States.

In collaboration with Wansley Walters of Ballard Partners, the former Secretary for the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice, a detailed plan was created to improve attendance; behavior, parental involvement and graduation rates. We were gratified that the Florida legislature endorsed our plan by earmarking funding for JusticeWorks to provide behavioral support and family outreach services to two Hillsborough County Alternative Education Schools.

On March 8th, our President and CEO, Dan Heit and Dipesh Chauhan, Director of Business Development were invited to present JusticeWorks’ proven models of cost effective programming at the Florida Coalition for Children’s CEO Council Adequacy Model Steering Workgroup.  We had a positive response from Lead Agencies across the state of Florida who saw that our proven community-based services which prevent out-of-home placements were well aligned with their goals.

Subsequent conversations have led us to partner with the extraordinary Brevard Family Partnership (Lead Agency for Brevard County).  We knew we’d get along well when we discovered we shared a fundamental principle to do “Whatever It Takes” to achieve positive outcomes.  We both employ that operating philosophy as a tag line and a constant encouragement to our staffs.
