TECHNOLOGY, POLICY AND CAREGIVING AT A CROSSROADS
Scheduled for June 22, the symposium to focus on South Florida’s caregiving needs
April is National Volunteer Month, so we thought we’d dedicate this month to our volunteers and recognize their socioeconomic impact to our community – after all, relying on volunteers to solve community problems is how we got started!
So let’s talk numbers! In 2016-2017, SoFIA saved Broward County approximately 6.4 million dollars! Over 600 volunteers traveled throughout Broward County offering their service in various settings and engaging various populations. Our volunteers engage children in Title I Schools; visit homebound seniors and adults with disabilities; provide respite to caregivers; mentor Veterans involved in the court system; and also ensure nonprofits maintain their ability to serve the community.
