The food distribution is a weekly event every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Broward Health provides a mobile clinic with free full medical exams.

Deerfield Beach Community Cares has received funding from the Community Foundation of Broward to create the Deerfield Beach Youth Development and Leadership Academy.

The programs will take a holistic approach to reaching at risk children. The goal is to guide them through tutoring, mentoring, and exposure to positive social and emotional learning experiences.
