Celebrating our child welfare professionals

We honor our unsung heroes all year long!

Taina Hernandez

I always knew I wanted to help people. After taking child welfare and therapy classes at Florida State University, I realized there were vulnerable children who needed support. It was then that I knew my calling was in child welfare. Here, I can help families find strength and help kids feel safe and secure.

Working at Children’s Home Society of Florida has been a great journey! As a liaison to all current and future foster parents, I work personally with each foster family, training parents and answering their questions. I get to provide the information they need to decide if foster parenting is for them.

The greatest reward of this job is helping families grow stronger. Every day, I see children who have been abused and neglected find hope and happiness because of our foster parents. These children see a world they have rarely seen: the love and support of a family. The dedication and commitment of our foster parents is truly inspirational.
