The Home Life Community Service Program is designed to inform members of issues that affect the well-being of individuals, families, and communities by providing opportunities and resources to meet and address needs through volunteering.

Our guest speaker this month is Berne Teeple from Broward Partnership, which has been providing short-term housing and solution-focused services to homeless individuals and families since 1999. He will let us know what kind of impact the Partnership is having here in Fort Lauderdale and how we can help. We are requesting donations of gently used bras to provide to the homeless women at the Partnership.

Also in celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are having a “Artful Bra Contest” and prizes will be awarded.  Memorialize those lost and honor survivors of breast cancer with your unique one-of-the-kind designed bra.  Please let Home Life Chair, Donna Richardson, know if you are submitting an entry 954-762-9444.  All entries must be at clubhouse by 11:00 am so we can set-up display before meeting starts.
