JOIN BOARDROOMPR IN SUPPORTING SOUTH FLORIDA CHARITY HANDY, HELPING ABUSED NEGLECTED DISADVANTAGED YOUTH
July 28, 2016
BoardroomPR is pleased to support the efforts of HANDY, fantastic South Florida charity. The charity serves more than 1,300 at-risk children annually who participate in comprehensive programs that focus on education, youth development, and economic self-sufficiency. We encourage all of our friends to support HANDY’s annual Back to School Shopping Drive. Just recently, HANDY recognized 17 of its alumni who recently graduated college.
HANDY serves children and youth ages birth to 23 years who have been removed from their homes due to domestic violence, substance abuse, physical and/or sexual abuse, and abandonment. These children have been placed in foster care, in relative/non relative care under protective supervision, or relative/non-relative care in prevention care to avoid them from entering the dependency system. They also work with older youth who are aging out of the foster/relative care system or those who may be homeless or on the verge of homelessness.
HANDY is a constant in their lives forming lasting bonds with caring and dedicated staff and with each other and learn to have healthy relationships that allows them to heal, grow, learn, and transition to adulthood as empowered young adults with the skills and confidence to become successful members of society.
