Since opening on February 1, 1999, the Broward Partnership served over 20,000 homeless individuals and families, by providing short-term housing, and it has been held as a model program for its comprehensive array of solution-focused services that aim to reduce and prevent homelessness. The agency won best practices awards from the Florida Department of Children & Families and the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development, which also recognized the Partnership as one of the 400 best projects in the nation serving the homeless.
Broward Partnership invites you to our 15th-Annual Salute to Leadership Gala the evening of Friday, May 30, 2014 at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina. The Yellow Brick Road gala honors community leaders who made a significant impact in helping the homeless rebuld their lives. Join us as we celebrate the 15th anniversary of the opening of the Partnership's Huizenga Campus, which served more than 20,000 homeless individuals and families in our community so far.
The Broward Partnership Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented in memory of Kevin T. Leonard, a founding board member and past board chairman. The event is an opportunity to mix and mingle with more than 300 like-minded community leaders while helping to recognize the contributions of this year's honoree.
Guests are encouraged to wear jeans & jackets, yellow cocktail attire -- or better yet -- dress as your favorite Wizard of Oz character!
We look forward to this year's gala being the most successful. To learn about sponsorship opportunities, click here.
On February 28, 2014, the Broward Partnership was presented with the “Outstanding Non-Profit Organization of the Year” award at the 4th Annual PNC Bank Non-Profit Academy Awards. The award honors an organization that accomplishes significant results and serves as a model for other non-profit organizations, and the judges focused on the following key areas of non-profit excellence:
- Exceptional overall results and impact
- Strong governance and executive leadership
- Financial stability
- Effective community engagement and partnerships
Competition for the award was fierce, and the Partnership’s selection as winner is a testament to the leadership of our financial supporters, board of directors and the tireless efforts of our dedicated staff -- all of which make a lasting impact on the issue of homelessness in our community.
