The Paul Palank Memorial Foundation is setting forth to
the help children in the Dade and Broward communities.  
The Directors share goals of balancing the funding or
programs that meet the immediate and critical need for
children to be safe and protected while trying to assist in
funding programs that seek effective long term creative
solutions to the underlying problems.

We can not help every need of children but, with sound
programs and God's help we look to the day when there
are fewer children in the crisis situation of abuse, neglect
and abandonment so that children with other needs could
receive the Foundation's assistance.

The Paul Palank Memorial Foundation presently has three
directors that serve to determine the distribution of all funds
for grant applications.  These directors serve voluntarily
and bring various backgrounds and skills to benefit the
Foundation, but basic to all is the genuine desire to make a
difference in seeing more children in safe and flourishing
