Residents interested in joining forces with United Way of Broward County’s Building Generations can attend a coalition meeting on Thursday, October 1 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m at the Family Success Center, located at 10077 N.W. 29 St.
In November 2008, the Board of Directors of United Way of Broward County unanimously decided to fund ARC Broward’s proposal, “Building Generations,” to address the financial stability of low-income families and seniors in the City of Coral Springs.
“The program was well presented, strongly collaborative and has the potential to be replicated throughout our community,” O’Flannery Anderson said.
On June 6, 2009, the Building Generations initiative held its first community wide event—a free Financial Literacy Fair for Coral Springs residents. The event provided quality financial information and education in a fun environment and increased awareness of financial issues and supportive services for Coral Springs residents.
Administered by ARC Broward, Building Generations is a major impact initiative of the United Way of Broward County. Other community partners of the Building Generations initiative include The City of Coral Springs, CareSource, FLIPANY, Minority Development and Empowerment, Inc., RESBEAT, Senior Volunteer Services and Broward County. Teen service hour opportunities and job placement are also available. For more information about the Building Generations initiative or upcoming events, visit www.buildinggenerations.info or call 954-746-9400.
