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.


Our next breakfast is

Thurs., Dec. 7, 2017

(To RSVP, please scroll down to RSVP blue button.)

‘Tis the season: what are we doing about it?

MONTREAL - AUGUST 20: A homeless man sleeps on a park bench in Montreal Aug 20, 2012. Homelessness has become a major concern in Canada. It prompted the government to commit $600 million over five years starting April 2014.

“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.”

-Nan Rich (Broward County commissioner and member of the Broward County Homeless Continuum of Care Board)

Fran Esposito-Michael Wright-Nan Rich2

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.
