Devereux Helps Care Givers Fill The Gap

(Florida)

Gap ProjectFor grandparents, family members and nonrelative caregivers who take in abused and neglected children, the first 30 days of adjustment can be overwhelming. Providing clothing, food, furniture, school supplies, transportation, medical care and emotional support can be a challenge. That’s why Devereux Florida developed the Gap Project, an effective and cost-efficient orientation program designed to assist new caregivers. In each South Central Florida county served, caregivers are invited to attend orientation events and receive professional guidance. In addition, caregivers are connected with community resources and provided one-on-one assistance in completing important documents. In the past year, Gap served nearly 600 children and helped ensure home placement stability for 92 percent of participating children. Devereux Florida celebrates this dramatic improvement from previous years and thanks its counselors for their hard work. Click for more information about the Gap project.
