Imagine my surprise: “Rev. Byrd, I’m calling from Gov. Scott’s office……”
This is news shared with Titus 2 board members and instructors! The faithfulness you all have shown has helped make Titus 2 something to be proud of and given us a broader “territory” to share the power of faith-based life recovery!
Titus 2 program director Cathy Byrd received a call today from a representative in Governor Rick Scott’s office advising us that Titus 2 has been nominated for a Florida Champions of Hope Award. The awards are presented to outstanding faith-based organizations for best practices, initiatives and innovations statewide. Nominees are recognized for their passion and efforts to the agencies’ missions. These awards are presented by the Florida Faith-Based and Community Based Advisory Council in partnership with the Department of Children and Families, Department of Juvenile Justice and the Florida Faith-Based and Community-Based Advisory Council. The Florida Faith Symposium is November 1-3 in Orlando and nominees will be recognized at a luncheon on November 3.
The three day Faith Symposium brings together more than 500 faith and state government leaders to highlight opportunities, facilitate connections and initiate action to empower Florida’s children and families to become productive and self-sufficient.
