Listen to WAVS 1170 radio AM at 12:20 on Saturday March 5th as Alecia Rodriguez will be on our Community Partners brinning awareness to benefits and support available for foster youth over 18.
Alecia has resided in Miami, Florida for the past twenty-five years after migrating from
Jamaica at a very young age. She is a college graduate who holds an Associate of Science in Medical Assisting, a Bachelor of Science in Health Services Administration and currently pursuing an Associate of Arts in Psychology.
As a former foster child who grew up in the “system” until aging out at eighteen years old, Alecia has first-hand knowledge of what it’s like for youth growing up in foster care.
In 2014 she established Sadie’s Daughter, Inc. (SDI) which is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was created to give back by connecting youth with positive members of their community, provide support, promote youth self-esteem and introduce youth to things outside of their current environment.
We provide comprehensive programs to address the things that will help children who are in need of permanent connections due to being in foster care. In addition, we also work closely with at-risk youth in the Miami-Dade county community who are in court ordered group homes and post-detention programs such as Miami Bridge Youth & Family Services and Girl Power Rocks. We also partner with groups such as Hands On
Miami and Girl Up.
