2-1-1 Broward honored Broward College President J. David Armstrong Jr. at the Kip Hunter Marketing "Making REAL Connections" Breakfast hosted by Signature Grand and presented by Baptist Health South Florida on Friday, May 6th at Signature Grand in Davie. Broward College President J. David Armstrong Jr. was awarded as the Milestone Honoree in recognition of all the support that he and Broward College have provided to 2-1-1 Broward, and for the tremendous support in helping the non-profit organization fulfill its mission and meet its goals.


The breakfast raised more than $55,000 for 2-1-1 Broward.  Just as 2-1-1 Broward facilitates the connection of people to health and human services, its partners and supporters offer the organization the opportunities to make these connections.


Broward College and 2-1-1 Broward formed a new and unique partnership in which specially trained staff at the 2-1-1 Broward call center answer inquiries from Broward College prospective students, students, and community partners.  The call center helps answer questions, resolve concerns, route requests to the appropriate departments, and connects callers with 2-1-1 Broward's many services, if needed.  Broward College also has supported the organization by acting as a corporate partner and a Non-Profit Awards partner for three years.
