Celebrating our child welfare professionals

We honor our unsung heroes all year long!

Elmer Higgins

Believe it or not, I never thought my career would be working with kids. Yet, now that I’m with Children's Home Society of Florida, I don’t think I could do anything else!  

When I work with my children and families, I work hard to make sure the children are in safe and loving homes. It’s great to see children who had once been in a difficult situation find safety and hope when they are able to return back to their parents or, if that’s not possible, when they are adopted into a family excited to provide them with lots of love and attention. It’s also incredibly gratifying when parents are fully involved and take advice on how to overcome challenges so they can bring their kids back home. It’s the best experience!

I dedicate all my time and effort to ensure children are safe. Sometimes I even dream about my job! Days can be challenging, but it’s always worth it – children and families need us, and I’m honored to be here for them.
