Hope Florida

Spearheaded by First Lady Casey DeSantis and implemented by the Florida Department of Children and Families, Hope Florida utilizes Hope Navigators to guide Floridians on an individualized path to prosperity, economic self-sufficiency and hope by focusing on community collaboration between the private sector, faith-based community, nonprofits and government entities to break down traditional community silos, in an effort to maximize resources and uncover opportunities.


CarePortal is an app-based technology that connects churches, organizations, and individuals to their community's real-time needs. CarePortal is provided at no cost thanks to a partnership between the State of Florida and Chris Tomlin’s foundation— For Others.
