Hispanic agency drops appeal on contract

Broward County's largest Hispanic social service agency abandoned its decision to appeal a $600,000 contract it lost to a Miami-Dade group, clearing the way for the new agency to begin operating.

"We made the decision to withdraw the appeal because we didn't want to further impede our client's ability to access much-needed services," said Josie Bacallao, president of Hispanic Unity and a former vice president of marketing for the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "We tried to work with Youth Co-Op and DCF to come up with a solution, but we couldn't come up with a solution. After managing this program for five years we know what it would take to do it well, and the funds that were offered would not have been enough."

The decision was good news for Youth Co-Op, a $20 million a year agency launched in 1973 in Miami-Dade County. It opened an office offering youth tutoring and job placement last month but was forced to put its refugee program on hold pending the appeal.
