More Families in Broward Need of Shelter 
Homelessness is a significant problem in Broward County. On any given night, more than 200 families find themselves in need of adequate shelter. According to 2-1-1 Homeless Helpline Manager Stanley Stubbs, "over the past few months we've seen a steady increase in the number of families on the homeless wait list. Historically, we do see an increase during the holidays, but this year we have reached an all time high."

"2-1-1 serves as the gateway for families into the homeless system. We work in collaboration with the Hope South Florida Action Program, Broward County Housing Options Program, Salvation Army, Susan B Anthony Center, Women in Distress of Broward County and a myriad of other organizations to place as many families as possible, but there simply aren't enough resources available," Stubbs said.

Community resources are lacking, so the Homeless Helpline has developed a system which identifies and prioritizes families in the most critical living situations. In doing this, 211 seeks to utilize available resources in the best way possible..
