Let’s build something together
Beautiful Ft. Lauderdale, known as “the Venice of America,” is visited by people from all over the world each year, making tourism and hospitality the root of our economy. One of the biggest challenges we face here is a shortage of jobs that pay income sufficient to support livelihoods despite our high cost of housing. So Bank of America is focused on funding organizations offering programs that support affordable housing. This also helps combat homelessness and assists in meeting the needs of our low-income seniors. When the health crisis hit, we were able to offer resources to organizations that provided shelter to the homeless and food for so many in the community who were suddenly unemployed. We proudly supported and volunteered at the development of an affordable housing community with more than 70 homes. On the jobs front, we're partnering with nonprofits and a local college to bring workforce training directly into minority neighborhoods throughout Broward County. Students can earn in-demand certificates and work with success coaches who provide guidance needed to enroll in college classes.
