Growth of ROOF Across State of Florida

ROOF continues to grow across the state of Florida, with the addition of a local Board of Trustees in each of six counties – Charlotte, Clay, Collier, Lee, Miami-Dade, and Orange.  ROOF’s mission is vital to the state of Florida in providing inclusive and affordable housing for individuals with disabilities. With the help of our local leaders, ROOF provides opportunities for adults with disabilities to develop the confidence, self-esteem and skills to live independent lives while being supported by knowledgeable service providers who assist them as necessary.  Each of our leaders shares in the vision to create inclusive and affordable residential options for our neighbors and loved ones with disabilities.

Visit our website to learn more about each of our leaders.  If you are interested in serving on a Board of Trustees in your community, please email Sheryl Soukup, ROOF’s Executive Director at sheryl@flroof.org.
