2016 Neighborhood Resource Units Monthly Reports
On April 8, 2014 The Miami Dade County Board of County Commissioners passed resolution R-370-14, directing the Mayor to provide monthly reports to the Board regarding the activities of Neighborhood Resource Teams. This resolution, sponsored by Commissioner Dennis C. Moss, was introduced to ensure that both proper resource allocation and community needs are being met. “It is important for this Board and the community be kept apprised of the Neighborhood Resource Team’s activities on a monthly basis,” said Commissioner Moss.
Neighborhood Resource Teams are multidisciplinary units which provide many important services in underprivileged and underserved sectors of our community. Team members include police officers, housing officials, public health officials and social workers who work together to cut red tape and assist in quickly providing access to government resources to those who most need them.
Please take a moment to review the latest Neighborhood Resource Team Monthly Report.
