The Broward Partnership provides comprehensive services to the men, women and families with children experiencing homelessness in our community through our 230-bed, short-term housing shelter and a number of community-based permanent housing programs.
The Broward Partnership is a non-profit organization committed to reducing homelessness by promoting independence and self-worth through advocacy, housing and comprehensive services. These services include, but are not limited to, physical, dental, and mental healthcare, job training and development, housing, and intensive case management.
Founded in 1999, The Broward Partnership's mission is to reduce homelessness by promoting independence and self-worth through advocacy, housing and comprehensive services. To achieve this mission, the Partnership operates the Central Homeless Assistance Center/Huizenga Campus (Center), a 57,000 sq. ft., 230-bed short-term housing facility situated on 2.7 acres near downtown Fort Lauderdale. Each year, the Center serves more than 1,400 men, women and families with children experiencing homelessness, helping to stabilize, engage and assist them in reacquiring health, housing and employment as quickly as possible. In addition to permanent supportive housing and short-term shelter, clients are provided with case management and access to services available onsite or in the community such as: medical and dental care; mental health and substance abuse treatment; individual and group therapy; psychiatric services; parenting skills classes; family enrichment activities; vocational training; job placement; computer literacy and life skills classes. The Partnership has won best practices awards from the Florida Department of Children & Families and the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development. In 2014, the Partnership was named "Outstanding Non-Profit Organization of the Year" at the PNC Bank Non-Profit Academy Awards and in 2016 was named the "Non-Profit Small Business of the Year" by the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce. To date, the Partnership has provided more than 25,500 men, women and families experiencing homelessness with the opportunity to achieve dignified independence and rebuild their lives.
