The Leo Goodwin Foundation has actively supported the Broward Partnership for many years. The 57,000 square foot Huizenga Campus includes a 230-bed short term residential shelter that provides short-term housing and solution-focused services to individuals and families in emergency need which is an average stay of 60 days. Since its opening, the Partnership has offered assistance to more than 21,000 individuals.
The Leo Goodwin Foundation was instrumental in the completion and outfitting of the Administrative Center within the Campus. It is the home for the dedicated staff who strongly believes that an individual’s stay at the Center, although time limited, represents a unique, and often the only, opportunity to gain the tools and implement the changes necessary to break the cycle of homelessness.
The first floor of the facility features a family dorm that accommodates up to 30 women and their children, the medical and dental clinics, case management offices, the workforce development center and computer lab, the child care center, a children’s learning center, classrooms, a library, a gym, a hair salon, a clothing center and laundry facilities.
The second story includes the Leo Goodwin Foundation’s Administrative Center as well as the behavioral health offices and the living arrangements that consist of two men’s dormitories, one women’s dormitory, and a modular family wing. For more information, please visit www.bphi.org.
