Ms. Cristy Kozla began her career at Broward Regional Health Planning Council in 2015 as a temp employee. A few months later, BRHPC was awarded a contract with the Early Learning Coalition (ELC) where Cristy was hired as a full-time employee and took on the role as the Payment Manager for the ELC Program. In this new role, Cristy ensured all day care centers in Broward County received their monthly payment, between VPK and School Readiness contracts, accurately and on time. After twenty-seven months, the ELC program ended and a new opportunity was present for Cristy. BRHPC was later awarded an expanded ADAP program and she is to this day, the Payment Manager for BRHPC’s Insurance Benefit Management System Program. Along with her extensive knowledge in finance and accounting skills, Cristy is also the office baker, who makes the most incredible and decadent desserts! Congratulations, Cristy!

Client Success Story
The client arrived at our office with anxiety because she owed three months’ rent and was served an eviction notice earlier that morning. The client faced this situation because her daughter moved out of the state to start a family and could no longer continue helping her. The client was immediately sent to Legal Aid, and they were able to start negotiations with her landlord to prevent the eviction. Staff reviewed the client’s applications and paid the client’s delinquent rent, preventing eviction.
