Congratulations to Marcia Barry-Smith, Director of Community Outreach/Program Services for being selected as a 2018 Woman of Distinction by the Lauderhill Regional Chamber of Commerce! Barry-Smith, one of ten honorees, is being recognized for her leadership in the community.

Highly regarded as an expert in community development around the nation, her nationally acclaimed program Homeless to Homeowner has placed hundreds of formerly homeless families into homeownership, empowering them to reach for independence and financial fitness.
