The following positions are open:
• Representatives of the Florida Department of Children and Family Services (1)
• Representative of Manatee County United Way (1)
• Licensed mental health professional (1)
• Child advocates (2)

Applications are due Aug. 14 and can be found at the bottom of the page at
