Social Services

The Social Services Division is dedicated to the following:

  • Create an environment where individuals can learn, grow, and be satisfied
  • Enhance the overall well-being of clients and the community
  • Increase prevention efforts and protect people in need of care by delivering services in a practical manner regardless of race, ethnicity, income level, sexual orientation, or special needs

Purpose

The division is to provide hope, support, and responsive referral services to our clients. It is our vision to move people and families toward quality human and social services, therefore, empowering them to meet their basic human needs.

Bill Assistance

Water Bill

A one-time emergency utility assistance pilot program to provide emergency utility assistance to qualified residents funded by customer and corporate donations, non-profit agencies and city employee donations. We will refer clients to the third party proposed by the City of North Miami or to other agencies that have similar assistance.

FPL Bill

A one-time assistance program that helps low and moderate-income energy individuals and families with utility payment assistance.

Financial Literacy

Financial Literacy is the ability to use knowledge and skills to manage financial resources effectively for a lifetime of financial well-being. We want to supply residents with a set of skills and knowledge that enables a person to settle on educated and powerful decisions through their understanding of finances.

To do this we have a free workshop, offered once a year, the Financial Fitness Workshops (PDF). We partner with Expert Resource Center to bring you this amazing opportunity.
