SAFEPLACE 4KIDS - 4KIDS of South Florida, Inc.

SAFEPLACE 4KIDS - 4KIDS of South Florida, Inc. | Business News & Finance | Scoop.it

SafePlace provides shelter and supervision in Broward and Palm Beach counties for all abused, abandoned, and neglected children when they are initially removed from their families. 4KIDS trained, qualified, and screened staff members and volunteers provide encouragement, guidance, and every amenity available to help the child learn to trust and laugh again. One of the only programs of its kind in the state of Florida, SafePlace 4KIDS welcomes children, newborn to 17 years of age, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Over 15 years ago, the foster care system was overcrowded and in need of restructure. SafePlace 4KIDS was launched in the face of an elevated need for more foster homes. As people in the community have responded, we have made major progress.

Today we still need:

  • Prayer for wisdom in caring for these kids in crisis
  • Families who will open their homes to foster children
  • Voices to help each individual child navigate the system
  • Donations to recruit and train foster parents (or to care for these children).

Please join us in providing HOPE to the modern-day orphan as God leads you.

“Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.”– Matthew 19:14 (NLT)

Two local businesses partner for meals and a makeover

Two local businesses partner for meals and a makeover | Business News & Finance | Scoop.it

Nine young women, many of them victims of abuse, experienced a dose of pampering Monday courtesy of two Davie businesses.

The group received the works, as the women had their nails polished, hair shampooed and styled, eyebrows waxed and also dined on a three-course meal. The makeovers and meals were compliments of Blend Beauty Lounge and J72 Chef's Cafe.

"I'm a true believer that whatever you put out there, it will come back tenfold," said Joel Ramos, owner of J72 Chef's Cafe. "It's not every day they get to experience something like this."

Ramos initially reached out to his church, Calvary Chapel Plantation, looking for contacts. The church then connected him with 4KIDS of South Florida, which offers long-term residential support for young adults who "age out" of the foster care system.

Arts Garage programming to continue, CEO says

Arts Garage programming to continue, CEO says | Business News & Finance | Scoop.it

The Arts Garage's decision Monday to cancel its theater season does not have an impact on other programming, CEO Marjorie Waldo said Tuesday.

"There were several patrons who thought we were shutting everything down," said Waldo, who came on board seven weeks ago. "We are not."

She said her first six weeks on the job at the Delray Beach performing arts center "have been to learn and listen and to evaluate."

Waldo added, "If I can do anything over the next few months, theater will be back in the fall. We don't have any concrete plans for what is gong to happen here with theater...we have to design the new business model."

The 2016-2017 season was two shows in to its sixth season of theater under the guidance of director of operations Keith Garsson and theater director Genie Croft. The third production of the season, "Blues in the Night: A Musical," was to open Jan. 21.
