Scope and Content:
Includes the research and working documents of the Florida Study Commission on Child Welfare. Specific items comprising the collection include: Child Protection Investigators survey and related materials; Foster and Shelter Parent survey and related materials; meeting agendas; reports; memoranda and other correspondences; materials generated by subcommittees; and presentations to and by the Commission. Of particular interest are the documents related to former HRS (Health and Rehabilitative Services) Child Protection Investigator Sally Wenstrand, who documented a series of problems within HRS that led to an independent investigation. In addition to the Commission’s papers, researchers will note the availability of records from the Florida Governor’s Commission for Government by the People. These records are comprised of items from the Frederick Commission, including materials generated by the Human Resources Committee and the Human Investment Committee. Consisting of 27 appointed members representing private industry, the judiciary, state and local government, and community-based organizations, the Frederick Commission worked to develop governmental reforms that would increase cost-effectiveness, accountability and productivity. Dr. Christian Giblin worked with the Frederick Commission to develop strategies for integrating the delivery and planning of education, human services and law enforcement at local levels in Florida. Relatedly, the Human Resources Committee and the Human Investment Committee sought to examine the roles of families, public and private community services (including prevention and early intervention), and community and governmental support for the state’s citizens. The Human Investment Committee’s reports were reviewed and discussed by members of the Study Commission on Child Welfare as part of its mandate for change.

bioghist altrender Administrative History 545 Administrative History:
In response to the deaths of several children under state care, the Florida legislature formed the Florida Study Commission on Child Welfare in order to examine and make recommended changes to existing child welfare laws and the states social services and welfare systems. Beginning in 1989 and spanning a two-year period, the Commission primarily was composed of members representing the states judicial, youth and family services networks. Study Commission members included:
Judge Rosemary Barkett, Commission Chair, Florida Supreme Court
William Bentley, Executive Director Florida Network for Youth and Family Services (Tallahassee)
Judge William Bankhead, Florida Senate (Jacksonville)
Judge Corrine Brown, Florida House of Representatives (Jacksonville)
Judge Lois Frankel, Florida House of Representatives (West Palm Beach)
Judge Carolyn Fulmer, 10th Judicial Circuit Court (Bartow)
Judge William Gladstone, 11th Judicial Circuit Court (Miami)
Judge James Hill, Florida House of Representatives (Hobe Sound)
Jay Kassack, Children, Youth and Family Services, Florida Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services (Tallahassee)
H. Mary McKeown, Esq.,Growney, McKeown and Barber (St. Petersburg)
Donald Middlebrooks, Esq., Steel, Hector and Davis (Miami)
Diana Morgan, Walt Disney World (Lake Buena Vista)
Judge Eleanor Weinstock, Florida Senate (West Palm Beach)
Christina Zawisza, Esq., Florida Legal Services Corporation (Miami)
Carole Zegel, State Guardian Ad Litem Program (Gainesville)
Additionally, Dr. Christian Giblin (Florida Mental Health Institute, Tampa) served as Commission Staff Director and Dr. Robert Friedman (Florida Mental Health Institute, Tampa) chaired the State Local Relationships in the Organization and Financing of Support and Services for Children and Their Families workgroup, which reported to the Commission on such matters as child abuse, prevention and childrens rights in foster care.
The Study Commission on Child Welfare assessed Floridas foster care system, childrens mental health services, and laws pertaining to children in state custody. Commissioners also examined model child welfare programs in other states, speaking with experts and compiling research documents on an array of child welfare and related issues. These materials constitute a large number of resource files originally collected by Dr. Giblin and other members of the Commission.
In addition to establishing the Florida Study Commission on Child Welfare in 1989, the Florida legislature also passed the Bradley McGee Act in 1991. Two-year-old Bradley McGee died in 1989, less than three months after being removed from a foster home and placed in the custody of his biological mother, where he suffered tremendous and eventually fatal abuse. Four social workers involved in McGees case were charged with failing to report child abuse: three of the four workers were acquitted; one was convicted and placed on probation. In addition to bringing to light Floridas foster care crisis, the Bradley McGee Act also provided funding for 628 new child welfare positions in an effort to regulate pay and reduce high caseloads for the state of Floridas social workers and child protection investigators. Moreover, this legislation expanded Medicaid eligibility, added to the availability of child care/pre-kindergarten services, and increased family-based therapeutic services for children.
At its conclusion, the Commission published the two-part emph render italic Report of the Study Commission on Child Welfare and A Survey of Floridas Child Protective Investigators. The Report consists of the Commissions recommendations, research and findings; the Survey answers questions related to working conditions, training, duties, in-service development, caseloads, laws and policies and obstacles faced by child protection investigators in Florida. Two copies of the final report issued by the Commission are available in this collection.
