Broward Partnership for the Homeless, Inc. (BPHI), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, is a private-public partnership committed to the provision of quality services and advocacy for homeless people that promotes self-sufficiency and independence as well as supports their dignity and self worth in our community's efforts to reduce homelessness. Founded in 1997 in response to the burgeoning number of homeless in Broward County, Florida, BPHI, in concert with the Broward County Homeless Initiative Partnership Board, representing the County Commissioners, was charged with the task of raising private funding for a new multi-service emergency shelter, overseeing the construction of the facility, and subsequently designing, implementing and operating its programs to provide comprehensive services to assist the homeless. Construction of the Broward County Central Homeless Assistance Center/Huizenga Family Campus (Center), a 57,000 square foot, 200 bed, residential emergency shelter, was completed in January 1999 and opened its doors to its first Residents on February 1, 1999. Since that date, over 12,000 men, women and families have received assistance at the Center.
Funding for BPHI, a 501 C(3) non-profit organization, is provided by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners, the Florida Department of Children & Families, the North Broward Hospital District, the Broward County School Board, the United Way of Broward County and public grants and private contributions from individuals, corporations, foundation, local businesses, civic associations and faith based organizations.
