Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Society Scene - Broward - - Front Page -

The Broward Part­ner­ship has been named a re­cip­i­ent of a Bank of Amer­ica Char­i­ta­ble Foun­da­tion 2015 Ba­sic Hu­man Ser­vices Grant. The grant is part of a $536,000 col­lec­tive in­vest­ment the bank is mak­ing in South Florida to ad­dress is­sues re­lated to ba­sic hu­man ser­vices.

Funds pro­vided by the Bank of Amer­ica Char­i­ta­ble Foun­da­tion will sup­port the Part­ner­ship’s work to re­duce homelessness in Broward County by pro­mot­ing in­de­pen­dence and self-worth through ad­vo­cacy, hous­ing and com­pre­hen­sive ser­vices. The Part­ner­ship op­er­ates the 230-bed Cen­tral Home­less As­sis­tance Cen­ter on the Huizenga Cam­pus in down­town Fort Laud­erdale. Along with safe shel­ter and nu­tri­tious meals, the Part­ner­ship pro­vides wrap-around case man­age­ment and ser­vices which in­cludes health and den­tal care, be­hav­ioral health­care and work­force de­vel­op­ment. The Part­ner­ship’s pro­grams and op­er­a­tions pro­vide ser­vices to more than 1,200 men, women and chil­dren ex­pe­ri­enc­ing homelessness each year.

“Bank of Amer­ica pro­vides a great ex­am­ple of the po­ten­tial of cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity with this grant and a model for in­vest­ing in non­prof­its who are serv­ing the crit­i­cal needs of those in their lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties,” said Frances M. Es­pos­ito, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of Broward Part­ner­ship.
