The Dr. Jacquelyn T. Hartley Children’s Crisis Center

All too often, children in Miami-Dade and Monroe counties require health care treatment for issues dealing with abuse, depression, neglect, obesity, substance abuse, and emergency care. Additionally, many of these children cannot afford to pay for health care services. Community Health Foundation exists to help these and all children to live healthy, happy lives.

This year, the Community Health Foundation is committed to helping Community Health of South Florida Inc. construct a Children’s Crisis Center to serve children in need. The Children’s Crisis Center project will be named in honor of CHI President Col. Brodes Hartley Jr.’s late wife. It will hold the name of The Dr. Jacquelyn Hartley Children’s Crisis Center and be built next to the Doris Ison Health Center. We hope to raise $5 million.

The Children’s Crisis Center will operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and provide care to all children from 2 to 18 years of age.Help make a difference today by making a tax-deductible donation to the Community Health Foundation. Your involvement will help make South Florida a better community for our children. Of the nearly 60,000 resident served, CHI provided hope fore more than 25,000 children in 2007.

Because of the quality, affordable and compassionate care that CHI brings to the community, South Florida’s uninsured and underinsured children can continue to live healthy lives.

Your annual support is needed to make this a reality.
