Thanks to our funders!
This project is made possible through a number of community grants and partnerships. These include building renovation funds (City of Fort Lauderdale: CDBG-R), funding for the Resale Shop Manager & the Job Coaching & Paid Internship Program Director (City of Ft. Lauderdale: CDBG), start-up costs (Salah Foundation), and funding to pay youth salaries during their internships (Jim Moran Foundation & Community Foundation of Broward). H.O.M.E.S. is currently collecting quality used home furnishings, accessories, art work, etc.., which will be either sold in the new store, or used to furnish apartments for our youth. Local businesses participate in our internship program, furnishing meaningful work experiences to our youth (with the youth being paid from our grants).
Where the proceeds go!
Profits from the resale store will be used in programs and projects carrying out H.O.M.E.S. charitable mission in Broward County – including our supportive housing program for former foster youth.
