Alfreta Hendley with LSF Health Systems was honored with the Social Worker of the Year award!
Alfreta Hendly Wins Social Worker of the Year
The Florida Coalition for Children held their annual awards celebration honoring the hard work, dedication, heart and tireless commitment of the men and women who work every day on behalf of Florida’s abused, abandoned, neglected and at-risk children and youth.
Alfreta has followed the lives of many different children who nobody seemed to want after difficult challenges arose. She has gone to court when she didn’t have to and when asked about these trips she would reply, “they have no one else showing up for them.” She has drafted funding agreements on single cases when money was depleted. She advocates for at-risk children every single day. You’ll see Alfreta sitting at her desk with her headset on, listening and sharing her knowledge about a child on a call deciding the fate of the child. Later in the day you’ll walk by her office again, and the headset is still on, and she is onto another case, another child, another life. Those who work with Alfreta know how seriously she views the processes built into the Florida system of care that is the safety net for the state’s most vulnerable children.
Congratulations Alfreta! We are honored to have you as part of our LSF Health Systems Team!
