Branches Partners with The Miami Foundation to Help At-Risk Youth Succeed
Date:6/22/2017

Branches, Inc. has been partnering with The Miami Foundation for over 9 years, and has received more than $245,000 in grant funding to support its programs focused on providing opportunity to low-income families and breaking the cycle of generational poverty.

Most recently, Branches, Inc. was awarded a grant by the Foundation of $15,000 to support its
Climb to College & Career initiative which focuses on postsecondary success. The program is designed to prepare and assist high school students from low-income communities who attend lower performing schools to develop the knowledge, skills and behaviors necessary to be successful in high school and beyond.

Branches is a local non-profit organization based in Miami and primarily focuses on student services and financial stability. Its Grow Program serves elementary students, preparing them for lifelong success through enrichment of their minds, bodies and hearts. The Climb Program serves middle and high school students, focusing on the development of their individual assets in order to maximize opportunities to become better students and better people. Branches’ Achieve Programs target the well-being of the entire community through services fostering financial stability and long term success. Services include the ASSETS small business solutions program, the Ways to Work car loan program for working families, free VITA tax preparation and hunger relief. Branches is also proud to house and operate the United Way Center for Financial Stability (UWCFS).

“We are honored to partner with The Miami Foundation. The Foundation is truly making a lasting difference in Greater Miami,” said Brent McLaughlin, Executive Director of Branches, Inc. “We are excited to bring impactful programming and services to the children, youth and families in our communities and to help them succeed in the long-term.”
