The Parks & Leisure Services Departments provides certain Community and Social Work services and programs.
Are You OK?
This is a “free” telephone reassurance call service to pre-registered seniors & disabled residents who live alone. City staff provide a friendly call to check on each pre-registered participant daily (Monday-Friday only), making sure that all is well. If everything is not ok or a participant fails to answer their phone after several attempts have been made to reach them, a uniformed Lauderhill Police Officer will be dispatched to the home and a well check will be conducted. For more information or to sign up for the program, please contact Rosie Burney by phone at 954-791-1039 or via e-mail.
Community Home Visit
A case worker can conduct a needs assessment with Lauderhill residents referred for assistance from police and fire departments, homeowner's associations, neighbors, or self-referrals. Appropriate service providers will be determined and contacted for direct service delivery to the resident in need. For more information or to see if you qualify for this assistance, please contact Rosie Burney by phone at 954-791-1039 or via e-mail.
Emergency Food Pantry
The City maintains a "free" non-perishable food assistance program. This program is for Lauderhill residents only who are unable to meet their immediate household meal needs due to loss of income, illness, or other family emergency. Proof of residency is required and an appointment must be made to review each individual case. For more information or to see if you qualify for this assistance, please contact Rosie Burney by phone at 954-791-1039 or via e-mail.
Form Completion Assistance
A case worker can provide assistance to residents requesting help to complete forms and applications, such as food stamps, disaster shelters, vulnerable population databases, etc. For more information, please contact Rosie Burney by phone at 954-791-1039 or via e-mail.
Each year, food baskets are provided to Lauderhill's less fortunate families during the holidays in November and December. Through the generous donations and support of the community, these holiday baskets help support those in our community who are in need. Referrals are accepted from Lauderhill schools, community agencies, and other organizations. Baskets typically contain non-perishable as well as fresh food items. The baskets during the December giveaway also include a toy for each eligible child (0-12 years old) in the household.
