COMMUNITY NEWS BLAST
HOT TOPICS
Trainer Cadre RFQ
The Children’s Services Council of Broward County (CSC) announces the release of two Requests for Qualifications (RFQ), one for new trainers and one for existing trainers.
These RFQ’s allow us to sustain a cadre of training experts to provide culturally reflective training of the diverse population that makes up Broward County, i.e., gender, race, and religion. This cadre will enable CSC to continue engaging the most proficient and skilled trainers to meet the needs of individuals and nonprofit organizations serving children and families in our community.
Future First: Mental Health for Youth
In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, we would like to revisit a very pertinent episode of Future First that highlights some resources and information found to be very useful, still today. Please contact the local organizations featured here as well as the ones listed on our website for more information.

THE READING NOOK
COVID-19: TESTING, VACCINATIONS, UPDATES, AND RESOURCES
A new Broward County program can pay up to 12 months in past due rent and utilities if renters have experienced financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Broward County Commission has launched an Emergency Rental Assistance program for residents who have been impacted by Covid-19 and meet certain income requirements. This Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP), is different than previous programs offered, so even if renters were not qualified for, or elected not to participate in, other rental assistance programs, they should take a moment to review this new assistance.
Tenants and landlords must work together to participate in the program, and funds will be paid directly to landlords/rental management companies and utility providers.
The county has made various resources available to assist in the application process, including local intake centers where help is offered in person, as well as a call center staffed with multilingual English/Spanish/Haitian Creole professionals from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday – Friday.

The City of Lauderhill Presents…
The events during this week are specifically geared toward residents in the six Prosperity Broward zip codes (33311, 33319, 33313, 33309, 33069, 33023) with higher than average unemployment and poverty rate. Prior to COVID-19, the residents were facing an uphill battle. From lack of transportation to no internet access, these residents were already struggling. With these challenges coupled with businesses closing and employees being furloughed or laid off due to COVID-19, the opportunities for residents in the six codes to recover from the impact of the pandemic have dramatically decreased.
From May 9-14, 2021 we will observe Return to Work Week (R2WW), an initiative to provide access to livable wage jobs and educational resources to residents in the zip codes. Attached is a flyer with the schedule of activities and a palm card to share with your network.
COMMUNITY PARTNERS’ CORNER
The CSC continues to support providers and the families they serve through the distribution of PPE and other resources. Agencies needing PPE and Family Resource Guides should contact Andrew Leone aleone@cscbroward.org or Danielle Bachelder dbachelder@cscbroward.org to arrange pick-up.
