Join us for this year's high energy event, "Havana Nights". More than 350 influential business and community leaders will enjoy a colorful cocktail reception while bidding on incredible silent auction items followed by a Cuban inspired dinner and then be enticed to rhumba and salsa the evening away. Guests are encouraged to dress in casual "Havana" attire. The Gala will also contain an awards presentation where the Partnership will recognize this year's class of outstanding advocates.

Proceeds from the event will assist the Partnership in operating the 230-bed Central Homeless Assistance Center on the Huizenga Campus, which serves more than 1,300 men, women and children experiencing homelessness each year. In addition to permanent supportive housing, the Partnership offers safe shelter, nutritious meals, wrap-around case management and comprehensive services, such as access to medical and dental care, behavioral health, workforce development, family therapy and others that assist persons experiencing homelessness in reacquiring health, housing and employment as quickly as possible.
The Broward Partnership annually serves over 1,300 individuals experiencing homeless of our community 24/7, 365 days a year. Please consider funding the needs of those trying to rebuild their lives, those who are struggling to keep their family together, those who need your help.
The Partnership provides the support to our program participants - the men, women and families that are in our care, with a safe place to sleep, food to eat, job skills to secure and maintain a job, access to needed healthcare, and housing assistance to help them regain the ability to be productive citizens once again.
Your gift, no matter the size makes a difference to our residents. Thank you for your generous support.
If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one. - Saint Teresa
Since opening on February 1, 1999, the Broward Partnership has served over 22,500 homeless individuals and families by providing comprehensive services to the men, women and families with children experiencing homelessness in our community through our 230 bed, short-term housing facility and a number of community based permanent housing programs. The Partnership 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. In 2014, the agency was honored as the Non-Profit Organization of the Year at the 4th Annual Non-Profit Academy Awards, and recently was recognized as the 2016 Small Business of the Year by the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce.
