Celebrating Hillsborough’s Protectors and Preventers
In April 2019, Mary Lee’s House and Champions for Children partnered together for a one-of-a-kind event. This special morning was dedicated to honoring Hillsborough County’s Front Line Staff that work tirelessly to fight against child abuse in Hillsborough County. Thank you to our protectors and preventers: Guardian ad Litem Program of Hillsborough County, Success 4 Kids & Families – S4KF, DACCO Behavioral Health Inc., Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, Gracepoint Wellness, Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health Florida, Directions for Living, Hillsborough County 13th Judicial Circuit Court, The Spring of Tampa Bay, Camelot Community Care, Eckerd Connects, and Gulf Coast JFCS!
