Hibiscus Staff Provides Outstanding Care During Covid-19 Pandemic
The Hibiscus Staff are definitely one of the most important elements of Hibiscus Children’s Center. Every day, dedicated staff are taking care of our most vulnerable children. Our residential staff provide the nurturing, stability, guidance, structure, encouragement, and love our children desperately need. Our community outreach staff provide critical resources and tools to help our children and families succeed. Clinicians who are certified in the Sexual Abuse Treatment Program receive specialized annual training and are certified through the Florida Department of Health. One of the key elements to help address the trauma experienced by abuse victims is through trauma-informed care. Hibiscus utilizes the Sanctuary Model, which is a trauma-informed organizational change model. All agency staff have been trained in the Sanctuary Model.
Additional staff working in administration help to support the operations of our programs and services. Working together with our generous community and partners, Hibiscus Children’s Center successfully accomplishes our important mission to keep children safe every day.
This year, the staff have done an outstanding job taking care of our children and families during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Heading into 2020, no one could have predicted what this year would bring to our community, and to the entire world. The Pandemic brought with it new challenges for all of us, but especially for caring for our children in the Shelter and Village and providing services in our outreach community programs to families in need.
