Since opening on February 1, 1999, the Broward Partnership served over 21,000 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.

More than 200 guests attended the power breakfast at the Partnership’s Huizenga Campus, where celebrity waiters dazzled with their table decorating and serving skills and competed to earn the most “tips” to benefit the men, women and children experiencing homelessness aided by the Partnership.
