County Director Model rolls out in Indian River County

Vero Beach - Devereux Community Based Care congratulates Caryn Toole for her recent promotion to Indian River County Director – a post that gives her oversight of child-welfare operations at the local level.

Toole has 15 years of experience working in child welfare on the Treasure Coast, starting her career in case management for the Florida Department of Children and Families before transitioning to case management supervision with Children’s Home Society. She is actively involved with several community organizations in Indian River County and serves on the Indian River County Children’s Services Advisory Committee.

“She has worked with hundreds of local families in the community and has a unique grasp of the challenges facing our local population,” said Carol Deloach, Devereux Community Based Care Chief Executive Officer. “We’re very lucky to have Caryn.”

The county director model first rolled out in St. Lucie County in 2013 and is gradually being rolled out among Devereux Community Based Care’s four-county service area as budget allows.

Under the model, a director oversees child-welfare operations at the county level and serves as a support to case management teams.

The county director also becomes the face of Devereux Community Based Care in each respective county, serving as the point of contact for the Department of Children and Families and the Circuit 19 judiciary, developing local relationships, engaging in community initiatives and networking among local businesses, social groups and government organizations.

Indian River County is the third county to roll out under the model. Denise Waninger was named County Director in Martin County in 2014. Toole will also oversee Okeechobee County until the county director model is expanded into that community.
