The Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County (JWB) has been making the safety, health, and well-being of our county’s children a priority for 75 years. JWB was established by a Special Act of the Florida Legislature as a countywide special taxing district to strengthen the lives of Pinellas County children and families. Our vision is that all children in Pinellas County will have equitable opportunity to fulfill their potential and achieve meaningful and purposeful lives as a result of the efforts of JWB and our partners.
