Mat John - 4KIDS Director of Programs

Mathew John, B.S.—4KIDS Executive Vice President
While working as an intern with the Department of Juvenile Justice in 1995, Mat interacted with many children who just had too much time on their hands, no direction in life, and no support system. He saw that with a little effort, many kids were able to shift priorities and make positive changes, and he’s been working with children and families ever since.  Mat joined the 4KIDS staff in late 2000 and has been privileged to oversee all daily operations of the ministry, has been actively involved in staff growth from 20 to 90, budget growth from $1 million to over $5 million, and played a significant role in the growth of foster homes in Broward and expansion into Palm Beach County.  Mat is currently responsible for executing all 4KIDS strategies, and serves as the Vice President and Treasurer of the 4KIDS Board of Directors.  Mat and his wife, Spring, have been medical foster parents and have adopted three medically fragile children, two sons and one daughter.
