This ribbon cutting ceremony will mark the opening of the newly refurbished playground area at the Broward Outreach Pompano Center, all to benefit the homeless men, women and children who reside there.

Spanish River Church will be donating playground equipment and furniture that they gained through fundraisers to the Broward Outreach Pompano Center.

Spanish River Church Homeless Ministry is a mission devoted to serving the poor and needy in our community. Beginning in 2006, a group of volunteers from Spanish River Church has donated their time and efforts to ease the plight of homelessness in South Florida through their efforts with the Broward Outreach Pompano Center, working directly with the homeless families served by the center.

Since 1922 the Miami Rescue Mission (a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization) Centers have served the homeless and needy men, women, and children of Miami. Every day the organization provides food, shelter, clothing, education, job training, spiritual direction and long-term rehabilitation programs in Miami, Hollywood and Pompano to nearly 1,000 homeless on a daily basis. The mission also has at-risk after-school and summer day camp youth programs. The Miami Rescue Mission started reaching out to the homeless in Broward County in 1992 and in 1997 the Broward Outreach Center in Hollywood was opened. Then in 2002 the Broward Outreach Center in Pompano Beach was opened to serve the homeless in the north end of Broward.

Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
