  • Meals provided to needy seniors increased through Meals on WheelsAdult Day Care, Senior Centers, and Elderly Congregate and Mealsites programs providing 526,843 meals -- surpassing the goal by 43 percent.

  • The Miami-Dade Housing Agency began a reorganization including replacement of senior management. While the agency continues to face numerous operational challenges, the occupancy rate for the more than 9,000 public housing units increased slightly from 92.9 percent in 2005 to 93.9 percent in 2006. In addition, funds administered by the Housing Agency subsidized the construction or rehabilitation of 984 units of privately-owned affordable housing that came on-line in 2006.

  • Early childhood development and education services provided by the Community Action Agency and Human Services served an average of 35,877 children each month.





Head Start and Early Head Start programs provide disadvantaged children with educational, health, nutritional, and social services that may not be available to them otherwise.
