#BuildingForBabies It truly takes a village! During the last year, HMHB of Broward has begun the process of finding a new home after twenty years of residing in a work space that was an in- kind donation. While this relocation will be an opportunity to provide more access to the critical services we provide, we are calling upon all of our supporters and partners, to assist us through this transition. We kindly ask you to become a supporter of our #BuildingForBabies campaign with either an in-kind donation of goods and/or services or a monetary donation. All sponsors will be recognized throughout our social media to include our website, along with having a plaque prominently displayed outside each area of our new home. Together, we can continue to make a difference and ensure that the services to the many lives we touch each day are not interrupted.

Attached is a Donation/Sponsorship form along with a list of some of the many items needed and opportunities to become a Sponsor. Thank you for your consideration and support.
