Mike Watkins , CEO at Big Bend Community Based Care, Inc., created in 2002 as a direct response to Florida's Legislature and Department of Children and Families initiative to improve child welfare services by developing solutions to care for children and families in their home communities.
Before serving as CEO of Big Bend Community Care, Inc., Mike served as District Administrator, District 7, for the Florida Department of Children and Families, where he developed and maintained a network of community stakeholders to effectively promote the alcohol, drug abuse and mental health, developmental disabilities, childcare, child welfare, adult welfare and public assistance programs and implemented a major legislative initiative to modernize the department's public assistance program by saving more than $10 million dollars, reducing the number of full time positions by more than 300 and increasing productivity by 25%.

Mike Watkins, the DCF's director of family safety programs, says the number of deaths, runaways and jailed children is so small that it has no serious effect on the statistic.
What's more, Watkins says, the agency has had great success in moving more children into adoption.
The proportion of foster children available for adoptions, according to Watkins, has risen from about 58 percent during the year Bush took office to more than 64 percent last year.
''They thought we should have thorough investigations,'' Watkins said.
Watkins said the DCF continues to ''make every effort'' to see the children within 24 hours. But, he said, it is simply impossible to assure that an investigator sees a child right away in every case.
