 Florida Institute for Child Welfare Information             

In 2014, the Florida Legislature established the Florida Institute for Child Welfare at the Florida State University College of Social Work under legislative mandate, Section 1004.615, Florida Statutes. In 2020, the mission was greatly expanded to create a continuum of learning opportunities and ongoing support for college students, recently trained personnel, and middle and upper management positions working in child welfare agencies to enhance learning and build capacity towards meaningful and systemic change within the statewide child welfare workforce. In 2021, an additional $10 million recurring appropriation was established to accomplish these mandates. The GROW Center was created and will be the heart of the Institute’s professional advancement offerings and will facilitate all management and administrative tasks, curriculum development, and coordination of activities.
