Children's Network of South Florida, LLC

 

Children's Network is committed to working with the community to protect children and preserve families

 

  

Introducing the Fell Family . . .

Ken and Joan have been licensed foster parents for a year. Early into their inquiry of becoming foster parents, they had a steadfast goal to be licensed as Medical foster parents. Soon after being licensed, they underwent specialized training and are currently one of seven Medical Foster Parents in our five-county service area. They have cared for 8 foster children and recently celebrated the reunification between one child and her parents. The event was truly heart-warming and the Fells played an integral role in supporting and advocating for the child and her parents. They continue to do so for each child currently living with them.

We applaud Joan and Ken for their phenomenal work with children and families. They are a formidable foster family- protecting children and preserving families. Joan and Ken, Thank you♥
