Like many things that change us and the world in some way, it starts with a dream, a vision, and an idea. The SMART Ride (Southern Most AIDS/HIV Ride) is no different. It was born out of a dream to make a real and significant difference in the lives of those infected, affected and at risk for HIV/AIDS. In 2002, the idea was a welcome change to this kind of fundraising, but met much skepticism about the reality of meeting these goals of 100%. The ride became a reality one year later in November of 2003 with less than 100 riders and about 100 crew, miraculously we raised $169,000 and returned it all to AIDS Service Organizations. Thirteen SMART Rides later over $8.5 million has been distributed throughout Florida making SMART Ride the 2nd largest AIDS bicycle ride in the country and the only one of it’s size to give back 100%.

Broward House relies on the generosity of our community to address the needs of our clients not met by our grants and protect the services that have had a reduction in funding. We provide everyone who walks through our doors guidance and support. It is the donations and event participation of individuals and businesses that allows us to continue this tradition.
Broward House is a not for profit social services organization with 28 years of providing services for individuals in our community impacted by HIV and other health concerns.
We strive to provide the community with services to support healing, prevention and the reduction of stigma. Our strategy of care includes a holistic approach to addressing an individual and family’s needs and capitalizing strengths.
The Spirit of Hope Society is an opportunity for individuals, families, or businesses to support the care and service Broward House provides to the community through an annual contribution commitment. These tax deductible contributions may be submitted monthly, quarterly, or annually.

Volunteers are the driving force of Broward House. Without the enthusiasm and commitment of our volunteers Broward House would not be as successful nor as impactful as we are today! It is our mission to improve the lives of HIV+ individuals in our community as well as the lives of others with acute illnesses. Our volunteers help us reach our highest potential and allow us to help the greatest number of those in need. We have a few different volunteer opportunities here at Broward House and we welcome you to apply for any or even all of our positions!
