Independent Living Services Advisory Council

As required by 409.1451(7) F.S., the Independent Living Services Advisory Council was created by the Florida Legislature with the "purpose of reviewing and making recommendations concerning the implementation and operation of the independent living transition services." Each year the advisory council prepares and submits a report to the Florida Legislature and the Department of Children and Families on the status of the services being provided, including successes and barriers to these services.

If you would like more information please contact Cal Walton, Youth & Young Adult Transition Services Specialist, office phone 407-241-4712 or email Cal.Walton@myflfamilies.com.
