We Create Opportunities
Our mission is to create opportunities through education and advocacy so we can empower the families we serve to improve their quality of life, while creating a culture of self-reliance and unity.
Our team works with our clients to help create the opportunities and programs that work for them as individuals. Our goal is to help individual families with comprehensive services that target their psycho-social-educational needs. Through advocacy and targeted outreach, we intend to link individuals we serve with crucial resources to empower them and build lasting partnerships. Our hands on approach and processes put in place to track every family will ensure their on-going success and our support as needed while they are navigating their way through life.
Andre and Veronique started serving others at a young age. Since high school, even in middle school, they had a passion for serving people, anyone, they just loved people. At an early age, they were both deeply committed to making a difference and giving back to society. In 2014 Andre and Veronique met while serving in the community; a friendship developed which blossomed into a beautiful marriage in 2020. Through the years, they identified the greater opportunity for people so with their passion for serving others they accepted the challenge to make a difference. They founded Opportunities for Palm Beach in order to meet the ever increasing need in their community. As a social worker and practicing nurse with over 20 years of combined experience, they have served families and children in need throughout Palm Beach County and beyond. The idea of creating Opportunities For Palm Beach was birth out of a growing passion and need to enrich lives, to focus on the challenges that especially faced members of our community; specifically those unique challenges that Haitian American citizens faced in Palm Beach. As Haitian natives themselves, living amongst the people, they wanted to create an organization that would promote stronger and greater partnerships with community leaders and organizations alike, to create better opportunities for families. Opportunities For Palm Beach organization was designed with the concept of partnering with local organizations. The approach will be: that the people know best how to empower themselves.

Use Healthy Practices to Protect Yourself
The best way to stay healthy is to follow these steps:
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after being in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick, and practice social distancing by keeping at least 6 feet away from others if you must go out in public.
Wear a cloth face covering to cover your mouth and nose when around others and when you must go out in public. The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected. Don’t place one on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing and throw the tissue away after use. If a tissue isn’t available, cough or sneeze into your elbow or sleeve, not your hands.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, computers, phones, keyboards, sinks, toilets, faucets and countertops.
