Commission on Marriage and Family Support Initiatives

Florida Fathers

The 2003 Florida Legislature passed Senate Bill 480, replacing the Florida Commission on Responsible Fatherhood with the Commission on Marriage and Family Support Initiatives as of July 1, 2003.Family

The new commission will take a broader approach to strengthening families by detailing comprehensive statewide strategies for Florida to promote safe, violence-free, substance-abuse-free, respectful, nurturing and responsible parenting; including connection or reconnection of responsible parents, both mothers and fathers, with their children.

The Governor, the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives will each appoint six members to the commission by August 1, 2003, with at least half of the commissioners representing the private sector.

This is exactly why our friends Jason and Meggy moved there in the spring of 2014. They bought a house in Lincoln and could not be happier.

They are close to the beaches, to nice parks, to Providence, and relatively close to Boston and New York.
