Focus on South Florida: The Cuban Exile Experience

When the building we now call Miami’s Freedom Tower was completed in 1925, it was the headquarters for “The Miami News” newspaper. But it is best known for its role in the 1960s, when refugees from Cuba fleeing Fidel Castro’s communist regime arrived here. The newcomers were processed and documented at the tower; it became known as the “Ellis Island of the South”. In 2005, the Freedom Tower was donated to Miami-Dade College. Today it is used as a museum, as well as a cultural and educational center. We focus on the new exhibit about to be unveiled at the Freedom Tower, called “The Cuban Exile Experience”.

Focus on South Florida: The Children’s Trust

More than one in four of America’s schoolchildren are on their own after they get out of school. The right after school program can help keep kids safe, inspire learning and help working families. The Children’s Trust’s after-school program guides are now available. The mission of the children’s trust is to improve the lives of children and families in South Florida. And this is just another way they’re doing just that. We focus on what parents need to know that could make all the difference for them.

Focus on South Florida: Teens & Diversity

What did your kids do during their summer vacation? Some South Florida high school students gave up a week of their break to learn how to break down barriers. They participated in a six-day residential program that brought together teens from across Miami-Dade county for an experience called “Metrotown”. “Metrotown” was made possible by the non-profit known as M-C-C-J. M-C-C-J was founded in Miami in 1935 as the Miami Coalition of Christians and Jews. We focus on how this potentially life-changing experience works, and why it is so important that it exists.

Focus on South Florida: The Education Fund

Back to school. It’s just about that time again. Since 1985,The Education Fund has worked side-by-side with the private sector to direct resources where they are needed most in Miami-Dade schools.
And the Ed Fund, as it’s called is in full back-to-school mode. Right now they are collecting back-to-school supplies for its Ocean Bank Center for Education Materials, a warehouse where public school teachers in Miami-Dade can pick up free school supplies. This benefits students, obviously. But it helps out the teachers too, some of whom are spending close to one-thousand dollars of their own money for supplies and materials in a single school year. We focus on the work the Education Fund does, and how you can help them achieve their goal.
