MERGING IS THE WAY OF THE FUTURE… COLLABORATING AND WORKING TOGETHER.
Switchboard Miami, one of the oldest nonprofits serving the community now has a new website and a database listings over 5,000 programs and serving Miami- Dade County and now the Keys. Three years ago, they saw a new opportunity. The “All Stars Awards” in October, was an opportunity to thank the nonprofits for providing the referral services to our 150,000 plus calls per year. Currently nominations are accepted in seven categories (Miami’s all star, rookie of the year, collaboration, leadership, innovation,volunteerism and most valuable).
Also Switchboard Miami just completed a merger between it’s phone counseling and the face to face counseling of Family Counseling Service. Today it is officially a service within Switchboard. Look for more updates as Switchboard Miami opens a new office in Key West with the newly acquired Helpline of the Florida Keys, formed in the 1980’s, and serving Monroe County. Big Congrats to you Switchboard Miami.
