In recognition of the tremendous support and connections that 2-1-1 Broward has received from its community partners, the non-profit organization is hosting Making REAL Connections Presented by Broward Health, a breakfast reception to honor six local companies that have played a key role in helping the organization accomplish its goals. This year’s honorees include BankAtlantic, Broward Regional Health Planning Council, Broward Sheriff’s Office, City of Oakland Park, Consolidated Credit Counseling, Inc. and Kip Hunter Marketing. The event will take place on November 3, 2011 at 8:00 a.m. at the Signature Grand located at 6900 State Road 84 in Davie, Florida.
During the Making REAL Connections event, 2-1-1 Broward will recognize each honorary organization for its commitment to building connections within our community and for helping 2-1-1 Broward fulfill its mission and meet its goals. Just as 2-1-1 Broward facilitates the connection of people to health and human services, its partners and supporters offer the organization the opportunities to make these connections. Without this support, 2-1-1 Broward would not survive.
“We are proud to support 211 Broward – an important partner for Broward Health,” said Frank Nask, President/CEO of Broward Health. “There is a tremendous need in our community for information about resources providing health and social services – especially during times of crisis. Together, we are making a difference in people’s lives by helping them make those connections when they are most needed.”
2-1-1 Broward makes connections – REAL connections – 24 hours a day/7 days a week. 2-1-1 Broward serves as the central gateway to health and human services, providing callers with support, advocacy, information and referrals that connect them to the providers that can best address their issues. 2-1-1 Broward services are free, confidential and anonymous for all residents of Broward County. “2-1-1 Broward receives over 100,000 calls per year from people who have no connections or have not been able to make the most appropriate connections needed just to survive, let alone thrive,” stated Sheila J. Smith, 2-1-1 Broward CEO.
Tickets for Making REAL Connections Presented by Broward Health are $35.00 per person and sponsorship opportunities are available.
