Atilus President Elected to Voices for Kids Board of Directors

FORT MYERS, FL, Voices For Kids (VFK), a 501(c)3 nonprofit entity serving abused and neglected children in Lee County, is proud to announce the addition of Atilus’ President Zach Katkin to serve as a trustee.

“VFK is extremely excited to have Mr. Katkin join as a director,” explained VFK Board President Dr. Kathleen Davey. “He represents one of the outstanding young businessmen of our region.”

Katkin, a long-time resident of southwest Florida and technology expert, is proud of the opportunity to serve.

“This gives me an opportunity to give back to this community in a way that is close to my heart,” explained Zach. “I can’t wait to bring my entrepreneurship and technology experience to help make a lasting difference.”

Voices for Kids is equally excited about the addition of Katkin.

“Adding Zach to our Board of Directors was a natural progression in the evolution and growth of Voices for Kids, shared Darlene Grossman, Executive Director. “We are very excited about the opportunity of drawing upon his vast knowledge and experience in the field of technology and business development.”

All parties know it’s all about the kids!

“We are pleased that he shares a commitment to helping make the lives of abused, neglected, and abandoned children safer,” explained Davey. “Zach will help our team continue to raise funds that directly support the Guardian ad Litem Program in the 20th District Circuit (Lee, Hendry, Glades, Charlotte, and Collier County) and our “Kids Being Kids” Program.”

Voices for Kids of Southwest Florida is a non-profit agency supporting Florida’s 20th Judicial Circuit Guardian ad Litem Program-Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties. The Guardian ad Litem Program supports volunteers who advocate for abused, neglected and abandoned children in court, the child welfare system and the community. VFK’s mission is to ensure every abused, neglected, and abandoned child in Southwest Florida has a Guardian ad Litem volunteer  (GAL) and every GAL has access to financial assistance and resources available for meeting the child’s health, educational and social needs, not provided by any other source.
