Orlando, Fla.-based Children’s Home Society of Florida (CHS), the state’s largest provider of services to children and families, has named Andry Sweet its new President and Chief Executive Officer – making her the second woman to hold the position in a 117-year history.
“CHS has a solutions-driven focus to end the need for foster care as we know it,” said Laura Kolkman, Chair of CHS’ Board of Directors. “Ms. Sweet’s leadership has transformed the way we serve children and families. Her passion and commitment will continue to inspire and innovate throughout Florida.”
As a leader in child advocacy, Sweet serves on the board of the Florida Coalition for Children, is active in both state and federal advocacy efforts, and has previously held board positions with the state’s inaugural Community Partnership School Cabinet, the Statewide Trauma-Informed Care Workgroup, several Children’s Cabinets, and the Child Abuse and Prevention Task Force.
