- SHORT-TERM HOUSING
- RAPID RE-HOUSING
- PERMANENT SUPPORTIVE HOUSING
While the total number of sheltered and unsheltered persons experiencing homelessnessin Broward County decreased by 12% last year, our work is not finished; the Broward Partnership continues to combat homelessness in our community because:
On any given night, there are almost 800 individuals and families without shelter in Broward County. Each month an average of 200 families experience homelessness and are placed on the community’s waiting list for shelter.
The Broward Partnership operates the 230-bed Central Homeless Assistance Center Huizenga Campus that provides safe and secure, short-term shelter with a robust array of supportive services which helps to provide each program participant with the tools they need to reacquire health, stable housing and employment within a limited time frame.
The Partnership’s Families First! Rapid Re-Housing program helps families quickly transition from emergency shelter to stable housing with ongoing case management services for up to a year after placement.
Permanent supportive housing programs, designed specifically for chronically homeless individuals and families, provide housing solutions with long-term rental assistance and ongoing intensive case management support.
A new housing navigator works with landlords and property managers to build collaborative partnerships throughout Broward County to place clients into their own rental units.
- 1,380 individuals and families received emergency shelter services.
97,612 nutritious meals were provided.
- 58 individuals were placed in stable, permanent housing and are receiving continuing services as part of the
Families First! Rapid Re-housing program.
- 76%of families who exited from the program obtained permanent housing.
98% of formerly chronically homeless households remained in permanent supportive housing.
An additional 354 bed nights were provided during emergency cold weather episodes.
