(Lakeland, FL) – Dr. Jerry Haag, President
“It is a distinct honor to be elected to this role to continue our work with the governor and our elected officials to ensure that every child and every family in Florida has access to crucial services that help provide quality of life,” Dr. Haag said. “In our organization, everything we do points toward empowering one more family and helping one more child, and it is humbling to be part of such an incredible council of people with that as our constant focus.”
The 20-member council’s mission is to facilitate connections to strengthen communities and families in the state of Florida. Some of its current initiatives include work related to child welfare, criminal justice, disaster planning, human trafficking, legislative issues and family initiatives.
Dr. Haag became the ninth president in the history of FBCH in 2007, and he is continually seeking ways to collaborate with others that will ultimately help transform more lives.
In 2018, FBCH and One More Child impacted more than 249,000 children and families locally and globally. One More Child’s core programs include Anti-Trafficking, Child Hunger, Family Support, Foster Care and Single Moms.
Dr. Haag’s term on the council will run through July 18, 2020.
