On October 5, Cassandra and Rodrigo, on behalf of the Miami Dade Unit, donations for families in the Bahamas. They joined with the Town of Miami Lakes to gather donations as a representation for our continued support for people affected by hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas. We officially forged a partnership to address the social and behavioral health needs of the community in Miami-Dade.

Mayor Manny Cid made a commitment to involve our unit in the planning and implementation of projects to come in the near future. It is our intention this partnership will open doors for all social workers in our community to network, build relationships and create opportunities in our profession.
