What is the GEM program?
The Broward Children's Center GEM Program is an intimate group of supporters committed to BCC's mission of providing infants, children and young adults with special needs with a better quality of life through Giving Every Month (GEM).
Becoming a GEM allows you to make a significant impact in the lives of more than 1,200 children with special needs each year and enjoy exclusive benefits only offered to GEM members.
