Healing Touch Buddies to Train New Volunteers

Healing Touch Buddies to Train New Volunteers

On November 14-15, 2015 Healing Touch Buddies will celebrate 11 years of service by training a new group of energy therapists to become “Buddies.” In the two-day training at Jupiter Medical Center’s Raso Education Center, they will learn techniques and gain knowledge specific to cancer care and how to sustain their one-to-one care relationships over the period of a year without sacrificing self.

Local Nonprofit Makes Global Splash

Local Nonprofit Makes Global Splash

Florida Earth Foundation has a history of working globally to make a positive impact locally. Most recently, the Palm Beach County nonprofit has created a global knowledge exchange platform called the Coastal Resilience Collaborative.

Coastal resilience is a state, national and global issue that demands attention. With rising sea-levels, stronger storms and some of the most valuable coastal real estate in the world, South Florida is particularly vulnerable to coastal events.
