Reform the Florida State Foster Care System
Petition Background (Preamble):
i cannot take legal action because there was no required documentation, nor regulation, of funds between foster parent and foster child. i believe this should be the responsibility of the social worker to document these allowances and create a savings account for these children. there is a bank in central florida who has already waved the adult consent signature requirement for foster children ages 13 and up. these accounts can be tracked with ATM cards and the bank even offers %100 percent free checking accounts to these kids when they turn 18, which have high interest earnings.
now all we need is a state wide mandate for all of florida... and hopefully soon all of the U.S.. banks will fight for these accounts, and incentive for the social workers could come from the interest earned in these accounts.
we, the undersigned, acknowledge children's rights in the state of florida and believe these rights have been violated. we, the undersigned, petition a call to action on behalf of the department of children and families in support of these children. in support of these children, we, the undersigned, demand that new regulations be made to further the future of these children.
we, the undersigned, demand that it become the assigned case worker's responsibility to transfer, document, and monitor any and all funds rightfully belonging to said foster children.
