Agency Capacity Building

The Children’s Services Council (CSC) is committed to supporting and strengthening emerging and niche agencies that provide services for children and families in Broward County.  We work in partnership with those agencies’ leadership to support organizational effectiveness and sustainability.
In an effort to maximize social impact, the CSC coordinates the Agency Capacity Building Committee (ACB), which is co-chaired by Council members Ana Valladares and Robert Runcie.  The ACB provides a forum for networking and resource sharing for emerging and maturing organizational leaders. It also offers an array of fast paced training opportunities to expand leadership’s organizational tool box through seminar boot camps, newsletters containing grant opportunities & other useful information as well as technical assistance.
