The State of Florida DCF (Department of Children and Families) has the Private Company ECKERDS CONNECTS handling DCF Dependency Cases, Foster Children, Children removed from their Familes, Case Management of OUR Children, and Case Management of OUR CHILDREN's Parents,  etc. 

For years Eckerds and their Sub-Contractors  such as Devereux has mishandeled, and mismanaged dependency case management cases and OUR children,  reaped the financial gains by linning their pockets and HAS NOT ONLY NEGLECTED THE FLORIDA CHILDREN AND FOSTER CHILDREN IN THEIR CARE  but they (Eckerds Connects and Devereux) are not being held accountable for their actions and behaviors. 

 

Research shows that throughout the years Eckerds and Devereux have received (in my opinion) NUMEROUS slaps on their hands, LECTURES from the higher-ups, and WARNINGS from the State of Florida ..........  but really have done nothing but PRETEND to fix the problems and issues.  Eckerds Connects and their Sub-Contractors  like Devereux have REALLY DONE NOTHING to correct their BAD BEHAVIOR and ACTIONS.  They have fooled all of us including the State of Florida by Pretending to do the right thing.   

Document after Document within the FSFN shows that Eckerds Connect and their Sub-Contractors like Devereux  have VIOLATED their positions and OUR TRUST!

In February 2018, News Channel 8 of Tampa, Florida broke a story where Eckerds and their mininions have allowed foster children to sleep in cars, live in vehicles at WAWA gas stations, allowed Foster children to sleep in offices, has failed to provide the necessary care and housing for these Foster Children.   

When the news story broke... the State of Florida was outraged.  The Secretary of DCf, Mike Carroll formed a 10 man team... to look into the problems with Eckerds.  this 10 man team outlined issues and gave a set date for Eckerds to complete and/or fix the problems.    

History shows that theses very same issues with Eckerds Connect have been occuring over and over again, with promises after promises from Eckerds and the State of Florida DCF, that "it will never happen again"

 

WHEN IS ENOUGH....ENOUGH????   It is time to get rid rid of Eckerds Connects and their sub-contractors like Devereux.

It is time to get rid of the corrupt Florida DCF privatized companies who do not do their jobs properly, who lie under oath, who care more about money and making money than they do about OUR CHILDREN.

IT'S TIME FOR THE STATE OF FLORIDA AND THE SECRETARY OF FLORIDA DCF TO TERMINATE ECKERDS CONNECT'S CONTRACT AND HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE YEARS OF ABUSE...FOR THE YEARS OF NEGLECT... FOR THE YEARS OF VIOLATING THE FLORIDA STATUES AND GOVERNING CFOP'S.......

IT'S TIME TO GET RID OF ECKERDS CONNECTS and their Sub-Contractors like Devereux who have put themselves ABOVE OUR CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
