In partnership with community providers and volunteers, the Broward Partnership is able to provide a comprehensive array of additional services on-site that help address the personalized needs of the program participants. Services include:
- On-site legal assistance provided by Legal Aid Service of Broward County.
- Life Skills Classes on topics such as financial literacy, goal setting and stress management.
- Barber/cosmetology services, offered pro-bono by professional stylists to facilitate job readiness.
- The clothing room, stocked with donated clothing, shoes and accessories.
- The on-site library offers a wide variety of donated books and a quiet place for study or leisure.
Because the Partnership provides short-term housing, residents are often in need of moving assistance, basic household supplies and continued access to supportive services in order to facilitate a smooth transition to stable housing and prevent a recurrence of homelessness.
By providing resources and linkages to support services, combined with genuine empathy and respect for the individual or family’s specialized needs, the Partnership’s aftercare case manager helps ease the transition to stable housing and empowers the participants to identify and overcome the initial challenges of re-integrating back into the community.
- Program participants are encouraged to utilize the services of our aftercare program for a minimum of 90 days after transitioning out of the Center or longer if needed.
- Former participants also have access to many of our on-site services.
- Many former adult program participants took part in monthly meetings for continued support, networking and increasing knowledge of resources.
- 387 face-to-face and 896 telephone contacts were made with former residents who participated in the aftercare program.
