This is an exciting opportunity to head one of the premier human service agencies in Florida. Opening its doors in 1960 and formally incorporated in 1974, GC has been providing community and facility based services to Florida’s vulnerable populace for over 50 years. Today, the agency provides an array of essential human services to over 30,000 individuals a year of all ages, faiths, cultures and lifestyles in 32 Florida counties.
