Sharon Alveranga-Jones joined BRHPC 16 years ago as an Administrative Assistant. Her ambition, drive, and craving for knowledge led her to pursue a BA in Health Administration and, further, MBA – Master’s in Business Administration. She now holds the well-deserved position of Housing Program Director. Sharon has worked on the Housing Opportunities for Persons with HIV/AIDS (HOPWA) Program since its inception in 2008. She is dedicated to her work, displays leadership qualities, and performs her duties with zeal and proficiency. These positive attributes awarded her the BRHPC Outstanding Leadership Award in July 2021. Congratulation Sharon, we are rooting for your continued success!

A SPECIAL THANK YOUThis Christmas holiday, Healthy Families Broward received generous donations from Plantation Police Department, McArthur High School, "JOLLY" and Broward Regional Health Planning Council staff in an effort to brighten the season for children within our program. As you can imagine with today’s economy, we see many families who are challenged with maintaining day-to-day necessities such as food, shelter, clothing and basic needs items. Our hope is to be able to provide these items for the children in order to help reduce the stressors that parents face.
Making someone smile is the most
beautiful thing in this world
Thanks to additional funding from MIECHV, NFP provided emergency supplies to families enrolled in the program, such as diapers, formula, non-perishable food, water, hand soap, and hand sanitizer,
among others. Nurse Home visitors distributed the supplies using all preventive measures.
