In 2014, the Children’s Services Board funded a new Advocacy Program for Broward Children’s Center.
The Program was created to assist families in identifying and securing community resources and educational
services to meet the special needs of the children served.
Additionally, the Center’s Transitional Living Facility (CIT) yielded great success with three young adults being placed
with a DPS (Diaphragmatic Pacing System), taken off their preexisting ventilators, and discharged to less restrictive environments.
In 2015, Broward Children’s Center received $100,000 from the Taft Foundation to fund the Therapy Department
for services in both preschool locations.
Additionally, a new contract was negotiated with the Children’s Services Council to provide Family Strengthening
to BCC families and others in the community.
Broward Children’s Center was approved to add grade levels 4 and 5 for students with McKay Scholarships,
giving the schools the ability to serve children, grades Kindergarten through grade 5.
