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.
We have a day for giving thanks. We have Black Friday and Cyber Monday for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. For the entire day on Tuesday, December 2, 2014, non-profits, families, businesses and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give back to our communities. However, you don't have to wait until Giving Tuesday to make a difference. Consider giving a life-changing donation now and then enjoy the festivities on December 2.
It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give through volunteerism or financial support. Then tell everyone you can about how you are sharing your wealth and/or time. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.
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.
