Enterprise — The Florida United Methodist Children’s Home has announced that president and CEO Mike Galloway is retiring after 45 years of professional social-work and human-services management experience. Nearly seven of those years were spent in his current position at the Children’s Home.
The Florida United Methodist Children’s Home has been serving abused, neglected and troubled children for more than 100 years. Under Galloway’s term, the Children’s Home has been able to serve more children and families across the state by expanding residential care, as well as by adding family foster care and early childhood education services. The Children’s Home main campus is located in Enterprise, while construction is underway at its new campus in Pinetta at the Madison Youth Ranch. Foster Care Services are available in Volusia, Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Hillsborough, and Flagler counties.
“In all our conversations about the Children’s Home, the goal was how to better serve the children in our care and help them become successful in their lives” said Board of Trustees Chair Evans Hubbard. “Mike has an uncanny ability to take ideas and execute them” he added. “That skill served both Mike and our kids very well.”
Mike’s planned retirement date is April 30. An executive search committee hopes to name a successor by mid April. Mike and his wife Myra are retiring to Alabama to spend more time with family.
