A few weeks ago, South Florida experienced destructive winds as Hurricane Irma passed over the State, causing millions to lose power and widespread damage to homes and businesses. Many of our member families were affected, left without power, unable to work and in some cases lost just about everything. Though several Clubs sustained damage and power outages, Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County (BGCBC) staff and maintenance crews mobilized quickly and efficiently to get the Clubs back into condition to open for our Club members.

Club members are back to school and this year, thanks to generous funding from the Broward Sheriff’s Office Law Enforcement Trust Fund (LETF), BGCBC will be able to provide additional bus transportation for members from their schools to the Clubs afterschool. Research shows that the greatest proportion of juvenile crime has been found to occur on school days between 3:00-7:00 pm, the hours immediately afterschool (Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention). The Sheriff’s investment into the Transportation Program guarantees that more youth will get safely to their Clubs afterschool each day.
