The Tower Forum is a private, non-profit, non-partisan business organization established in 1976. The organization consists of business executives from industries and professions in south Florida. The Tower Forum has become the “go-to” discussion venue in Broward, where these leaders identify critical issues facing our community, engage in public dialogue, and encourage positive change.
“While the county is under no constitutional or legal mandate to provide services to the homeless, I believe there is a moral mandate to do so. Broward County has and will continue to take a leadership role in addressing homelessness; but a collective effort, including financial commitments from our 31 municipalities and other partners, is essential to success. Collaboration and coordination with our municipalities, the business community, faith-based organizations, law enforcement, and social service agencies is critical to ending homelessness in Broward County.”
As the holidays draw closer and we reconfirm our moral mandates, we’re far from eradicating the issues surrounding homelessness. Join our panel of key players in the Broward Homelessness arena as we discuss what latest obstacles and solutions face our county, what progress we have made, and how you can help.
Ms Esposito’s entry into the field of homelessness started in 1990. She has been for many years, and is currently, Chief Executive Officer of the Broward Partnership.
Mr. Wright serves as Administrator of the Broward County Homeless Initiative Partnership.
