Patty Carroll

Director of Community Relations and Recruitment

Patty Carroll joined the PSF family in 2011 as an intern in the Community and Government Relations Department and was quickly hired as a part-time Community Relations Assistant as she completed her BA in English at the University of Florida, minoring in Communications. Upon graduating in 2012, Patty was happy to join PSF full-time as the agency’s Community and Provider Relations Assistant, eventually receiving multiple promotions to the Community Relations Coordinator position and later to the Senior Community Relations Professional position. In these roles, she implemented communication strategies to increase PSF’s reach in our 13 counties, developed engaging and interactive social media campaigns and drafted persuasive grant proposals to enhance the services available to the children and families in PSF’s care. In her current role, Carroll is responsible for community and government relations including media relations, recruitment of foster/adoptive families and special events. She can be reached via Email or at 352-244-1561.

Child abuse is preventable
We can help change the lives of many children and teens.

A hallmark of PSF’s system of care is our belief that child abuse is preventable. We have found that by providing resources and supports to families in need on the front end, many can avoid reaching the crises that lead to formal child welfare involvement functions.
