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.

Focus on South Florida: “The Miami Generation: Revisited”

In 1983, Miami’s former Cuban Museum of Arts and Culture presented the groundbreaking exhibition “The Miami Generation”. It brought together the work of nine emerging artists from Miami’s Cuban exile community. Now, more than 30 years later, NSU Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale picks up where the exhibition left off, with “the Miami Generation: Revisited”. The new exhibit features works created since 1983 by the original nine artists. We focus on the new works, with the help of one of the original artists and the exhibit’s curator.

Focus on South Florida: Tunnel to Towers Foundation & 5K Run

The 13th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks is here. So is the “Tunnel to Towers” walk and run in Fort Lauderdale, of which CBS4 is a proud sponsor. The Tunnel to Towers Foundation was started by the family of Stephen Siller, one of the firefighters who died responding to the 9/11 attacks. The money raised goes to help the families of first responders and military heroes who made sacrifices in the line of duty. We focus on all the amazing work done by the foundation, and how you can get involved in this worthwhile cause.
