 Family Care Council Florida Public Meeting
The Family Care Councils are a group of Governor-appointed volunteers who advocate for individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. The council’s primary functions are to:
• assist in providing information and outreach to self-advocates and families;
• review the effectiveness of the APD and make recommendations with respect to implementation;
• advise the APD administrators on the community and family support systems in their area; and
• meet and share information with other area FCCs.

The FCCs work closely together representing individuals with developmental disabilities and their families as a united voice. Through the Family Care Council Florida (FCCF), chairpersons or a representative of each council meets quarterly to educate and discuss common issues and concerns. Speakers are often invited to provide the FCCF with information on topics that affect individuals with developmental disabilities in Florida.
