Program Overview

The HEAL Trauma program, funded by Children’s Services Council of Broward County, operating in Pompano and Deerfield Beach, connects youth and families to community resources while building and strengthening alliances between families and service providers.

    utility payments, and groceries

  • Opportunities to participate in activities including yoga, arts and crafts, cultural dance, self expression workshops, and music exploration
