Helping Abused Neglected Dependent Youth

Helping Abused Neglected Dependent Youth (HANDY) was founded in 1985 to meet the fundamental needs of Broward County’s foster care children. In recent years, we have expanded our services and programs to include abused, neglected, and abandoned children placed with relative and non-relative caregivers under court protection. HANDY provides comprehensive, direct-service programs designed to ensure healthy childhood development by meeting emergency needs for food, clothing, and beds; providing independent living skills training to assist youth with the transition into adulthood; and providing educational, recreational, and social programs so these fragile children can experience some of the joys of childhood to which they would not otherwise have access.
