Outstanding children’s advocates to be recognized

Florida’s Children First will receive the 2015 Paul Doyle Children’s Advocacy Award for its Counsel for Dependent Children with Special Needs Project, which secured the right to counsel for dependent children in five categories through HB 561. First runner-up is Gulfcoast Legal Services for its GLS Child Project, and second runner-up is the Medicaid to Age 26 Project of Florida’s Children First and Florida Legal Services. The biennial award is sponsored this year by Akerman LLP and named for the Foundation’s longtime director of Legal Assistance for the Poor and Law Student Assistance grant programs in recognition of his commitment to high-quality legal representation of low-income children. The award will be presented at the Foundation’s annual dinner June 25.
