Clearwater Photographer :: Juvenile Welfare Board (JWB) :: Board of Directors Group Photo

I was recently commissioned by the Juvenile Welfare Board (JWB) to create group photos for their website of their three community councils: South County, Mid County and North County. They wanted the group photographed so that we could remove the background and drop in a new background along with a map of the area that they cover within Pinellas County. It was truly a pleasure to work with everyone.

In Pinellas County, children are 17% of our population and 100% of our future. Yet, a number of conditions may hinder them from realizing their fullest potential. For over 70 years, the Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County (JWB) has been committed to making children a priority – advocating for their best interests and investing to improve their futures.

JWB is a high-performing, data-driven organization established by a Special Act of the Florida Legislature to strengthen the lives of children and families in Pinellas County. As a countywide special taxing district, we responsibly direct our community’s investments to give children the best opportunities to lead healthy, successful, and satisfying lives.

Governed by an 11-member Board of Directors and nationally accredited through the Council on Accreditation, JWB’s program budget of $57 million strengthened the lives of 66,000 children and families through investments in 88 programs with 49 nonprofit agencies in FY18.  We also work collectively with partners to address complex issues facing our county’s children to include childhood hunger, grade-level reading, and preventable child deaths. Our investments and work are focused in four strategic areas: School Readiness, School Success, the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect, and Strengthening Community.
