Marcus Johnson, Children’s Home Society of Florida
Looking to give parents and families the tools to cultivate safe, nurturing homes for their children, the Children’s Home Society of Florida (CHS) ultimately wants to end the need for foster care as we know it through early intervention.
By reaching families before crises occur, CHS helps them stay safe and strong together, giving children more chances to thrive. A dedicated team of 1,300 professionals work together to support the children of Florida under a common goal: to create a world where all children have the tools and support they need to realise their full potential.
Part of this inspiring team is Dr Marcus Johnson, a retired Army Veteran and CHS’ passionate CIO. Although he does not directly interact with the families CHS serves, Johnson is driven by his team’s goal to make the lives of those staff on the frontline easier, giving them more time to focus on the children.
