Eckerd Connects will no longer provide child welfare, foster care services

November 2, 2021 - Eckerd Connects will no longer oversee thousands of child welfare cases in Pinellas, Pasco and Hillsborough Counties. Eckerd Connects’ board of directors decided the organization is no longer able to provide child welfare and foster care services due to a lack of funding. The board made the decision on Oct. 26, and the Florida Department of Children and Families notified Eckerd it will find a new provider for the Pinellas and Pasco contract in the next 60 days. It is not yet clear what agency will handle Eckerd’s caseload.
