Florida Cares is dedicated to improving the lives of incarcerated through visitation, advocacy and programs. We strive for a positive working relationship with the FDC, for a healthy bridge between the administration, families, guards and the incarcerated for true rehabilitation and healing. Committed to helping incarcerated individuals through public awareness, family support, educational and enrichment programs.
Our "Beat the Heat" challenge is an event to raise awareness of the extreme heat conditions that incarcerated people endure in Florida's prisons due to the lack of air conditioning and ventilation.

Florida Cares just completed our 2nd Annual Back to School Project. Last year we provided 75 backpacks. Our goal this year was 200. With the assistance of our dedicated volunteers and donors we were able to provide 709 children with backpacks filled with school supplies. This is the equivalent of supplying an elementary school.
