Focus on South Florida: Autism Awareness

According to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control, one in 68 U.S. children has an autism spectrum disorder. That’s a 30 percent increase from just two years ago. For more than 20 years, the mission of the Dan Marino Foundation has been to empower individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities. Now the Marino Foundation is getting help promoting autism awareness from a rather unlikely source. We focus on its partnership with Everglades Holiday Park, and how you can join the cause.

Focus on South Florida: ReadingPals

Research shows that 60 percent of all fourth graders in this country are not reading at grade level. That puts them at risk to fall behind in school and become discouraged. And these kids are four times more likely to drop out of high school. The United Way of Miami-Dade’s ReadingPals program helps children improve their literacy skills, starting when kids are in preschool. We focus on how the program works and the need for volunteers to help the program grow.

Focus on South Florida: Guitars Over Guns

Guitars Over Guns, or GOGO, is a local nonprofit organization, which provides after-school mentoring to at-risk youth. It does so through music education and performance as an alternative to the gang recruitment, drugs and violence that typically dominate their environments. We focus on how this unique program works, and the impact it is having on local students.

Facing South Florida: Last Chance Boot Camp

This special edition of Facing South Florida, “Last Chance Boot Camp” is the culmination of a 4-month CBS4 News investigation that follows one class of boot camp cadets – a collection of carjackers, burglars and armed robbers being given one last chance to turn their lives around. We take you inside the last remaining boot camp in Florida, and this facility may be short-lived as well. The Miami-Dade County Commission is poised to decide whether to shut it down. Not because it doesn’t work, but simply to save money.
