This response to the Florida Independent Living Services Advisory Council annual report begins by citing the statutory authority for the establishment of the Council and then discusses the Council’s recommendations. The recommendations address: designing service delivery specifically for pregnant and parenting youth in foster care; the creation of an employment workgroup to assess the effectiveness of the youth accessing workforce services at the regional workforce boards; the creation of an education workgroup to assess the effectiveness of the youth accessing educational services; the participation of child-welfare organizations in Department of Juvenile Justice projects and workgroups; and the creation of a workgroup comprised of a young adult from each of the seven Department regions, to discuss how to improve the policies, procedures, and services provided to them by the Department of Children and Families.
