Many families found a silver lining having the opportunity to spend more time at home with their children during shutdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However; shutdowns translated to an increase in drug use and the need for foster parents and adoptive families did not stop.

Open Doors Statewide Director, Robyn Metcalf, wrote an opinion article where she talks about trafficking in Florida. She states that Florida has the third-highest rate of human trafficking reports to the National Human Trafficking Hotline. 

This month, while celebrating Black history, we are proud to recognize the work being done in our community to create a more equitable future for all. Every day, Dr. Brook Bello works to build a stronger Florida, and nation, to bring the diverse aspects of our community together. We are proud to call Dr. Brook a friend and partner! She is the Founder, CEO and Executive Director of More Too Life.

This year, the Heart Gallery of Sarasota is featuring twice as many "waiting" children and more that are within 24 months of aging out than in previous years, due to the effect of COVID-19 shutdowns on the foster care system.

A Note From Lana Swartzwelder, CEO


Every January 1st, over the years, many of us embark on new adventures and goals with gusto. Then, by the 15th, much of the new energy has subsided and we get back into the regular swing of things, demands, and events. At least, that has been my experience. I anticipate that this year may be a little different based on the past year, where we quickly learned that change demanded action that was often out of our comfort zone. As hard as it was, we did it. Hopefully, we will continue embellishing on the positive changes and making new ones.  As we all look forward to personal changes that we will make this year, we want to share the change that The Libertore Fund for Children is making in 2021.
