Who Are We?  

Kids’ Chance of Florida, Inc. was incorporated on December 1, 2015.  It’s Founding Board represented a dynamic cross section of professionals and interested parties. KCFL has enjoyed adding to the success of the Kids’ Chance chapters across the country.

Since its founding in 2015, Kids’ Chance of Florida, Inc. has awarded 71 scholarship totaling over $300,000 and has a current graduation rate of 100%.  Kids’ Chance believes that we can make a significant difference in the lives of all children affected by a workplace injury by helping them pursue and achieve their educational goals. In 2023, over $65,000 were awarded to 13 individual scholarships. The average scholarship was $5,000 per student.

Kids’ Chance of Florida, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization by professionals who have an affiliation with workers’ compensation in our state.  We are governed by an all-volunteer board, and raises funds for scholarships through donations from individuals, corporations, foundations, the United Way, and other organizations active in workers’ compensation matters. 

How it all Started 

Robert Clyatt, a workers’ compensation attorney from Valdosta, Georgia, founded the first Kids’ Chance organization in 1988. Through his work, he had witnessed the life-shattering impact that a serious workplace injury had on the children of seriously or fatally injured workers, who were now faced with the difficulty of having to fund their own education. With the assistance of the Workers’ Compensation Section of the Georgia Bar, Bob Clyatt incorporated Kids’ Chance of Georgia and began raising money to fund educational scholarships for the children of injured Georgia workers, so that they could pursue their educational goals.  Kids’ Chance of Georgia began reaching out to other states and encouraged and assisted them in establishing their own Kids’ Chance organizations. Thanks to their efforts, states have organized Kids’ Chance programs that are actively providing need-based scholarships to the families of seriously injured workers, and new Kids’ Chance organizations are being formed each year.

Since our early beginnings, Kids’ Chance has grown and evolved, and we have become a diverse group of employers, insurers, labor, state government, medical care providers, and both plaintiff and defense attorneys, who are working together to make a difference in the lives of all children affected by a workplace injury by helping them achieve their educational dreams.
